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.

    Sure would be nice for graduate Nursing Students do their clinical hours at SGMC ER instead of having to drive so far. What wonderful training they could receive and at the same time save on expenses.
