Specialty certification

At Regions we are very proud of our many nurses who have achieved a specialty certification. Certification enhances our nurses professionally and personally, it validates a nurse’s knowledge, skills and commitment to their nursing practice. Certification is strongly encouraged and highly valued at Regions. When certification is achieved, our nurses receive professional and financial recognition on an annual basis.
