CRRN Advocacy Award

The Rehabilitation Nursing Certification Board (RNCB) is accepting applications for the CRRN Advocacy Award. The purpose of this award is to recognize healthcare organizations that advocate for certification for rehabilitation nurses, providing support to and recognition of certified staff.

Facilities that employ rehabilitation nurses are eligible to apply for this award. Organizations include but are not limited to the following settings: in- and outpatient rehabilitation units, long term acute care, home health care, skilled nursing, comprehensive outpatient rehabilitation centers, and health systems. A unit or division of an organization is eligible to apply.

The award is comprised of four categories. Applicants must demonstrate support or recognition in each of the four categories.

  • Support a culture of certification
  • Support for initial CRRN certification
  • Support of ongoing CRRN certification
  • Recognition of CRRNs

The application deadline is September 30, 2021.

The winner will be recognized at ARN's annual conference and on our website, and will receive a certificate to commemorate the honor.
