Four Beebe Nurses Earn Orthopaedic Nursing Certification
Four Beebe Medical Center nurses earned orthopaedic nursing certifications over the past year. All of these nurses are experienced in specialized care and treatment of orthopaedic patients and are assigned to the hospital's dedicated orthopaedic wing -- the James P. Marvel Jr. Wing.
The nurses are: Ashley Dorman, RN, ONC, Regina Newell, RN, ONC, Beth Waite RN, ONC, and Diane Wilson, RN ONC.
The nurses' commitment to their education and to a high standard of patient care reflects Beebe Medical Center's own commitment. Over the past four years HealthGrades has ranked Beebe Medical Center as a top orthopaedic program. For 2010, HealthGrades has ranked Beebe Medical Center among the Top 5% of all hospitals in the nation. HealthGrades said that Beebe Medical Center is the only hospital in Delaware, Maryland, and Virginia to receive 5-star ratings for all orthopedic procedures measured by HealthGrades.
Ashley Dorman has been a nurse in the Orthopaedic Wing for four years. Regina Newell serves as nurse manger. Diane Wilson has been with Beebe for seven years, and serves as the night charge nurse and also fills in as relief nursing supervisor. Beth Waite has been with Beebe for fourteen years and also serves as night charge nurse.
The Orthopaedic Nursing Certification Board (ONCB®) was established in 1986 to promote the highest standards of Orthopaedic Nursing practice. ONCB certification exams recognize a commitment to lifelong learning and a high level of knowledge that contributes to effective patient care and safety. The ONC examination is accredited by the American Board of Nursing Specialties (ABNS).
