Valdosta, Georgia - June 17, 2011

Six South Georgia Medical Center nurses recently became CENs or Certified Emergency Nurses.

It's the highest degree of its kind for ER nurses and helps them to assess illnesses quicker.

"It gives me a better skill set," says Tracey Gniewek, RN, CEN, who just became certified. "So, when a patient comes in with a potentially life-threatening illness, or trauma, I am better prepared to address that patient's needs."

SGMC's emergency department is staffed with 90 nurses. Nine of them are now CENs.
