Barbara Humpert, RN, Intensive Care Unit Supervisor at William Newton Hospital recently received national recognition for reaching a significant milestone in her nursing profession. Since 1983, she has consistently maintained CCRN certification offered through American Association of Critical-Care Nurses. Barbara is one of 360 CCRNs being honored this year by the corporation and the American Association of Critical Care Nurses for 30 years of continuous certification. CCRN certification is one of the most advanced and highly regarded professional credentials that can be achieved by a nurse in the field of acute and critical care. 

The importance of clinical certification to the health and well-being of patients in the U.S. has been well documented. Research studies have specifically linked CCRN certification to higher levels of job satisfaction, clinical knowledge, experience and skill. These studies have found that CCRN certified nurses are particularly motivated to maintain clinical excellence even in rapidly changing acute and critical care environments. 

“Barbara has been an instrumental part of the nursing service team at WNH since she began her employment in 1975 and has supervised the ICU since 1990. We at WNH so appreciate Barbara’s ongoing commitment to her nursing career and her dedication to providing excellent care to our patients,” said Kristie Ball, RN, BSN, MBA, Chief Nursing Officer at WNH. “Achieving and maintaining the CCRN credential over time validates her commitment to advanced clinical knowledge and tangibly demonstrates a lifelong commitment to patients and families in south central Kansas.”
