An article by Diana Harmon, MSN, MHA, RN, CCCTM, Chairperson, Certified in Care Coordination and Transition Management (CCCTM™) Test Development and Item Writers committees, Medical-Surgical Nursing Certification Board (MSNCB), has been included in a USA Today supplement, Investing in Our Nurses, published by MediaPlanet.
The supplement was distributed nationally May 12 to coincide with National Nurses Week.
Diana’s article is entitled “A New and Important Certification for Those Called to Serve,” and is expected to be read online by an estimated 3+ million readers.
The article describes how patients are falling through the cracks in today’s health care system due to the lack of coordinated care, and how RNs are uniquely qualified to provide this crucial service.
Diana also outlines the value of CCCTM certification for nurses, patients, facilities, and the entire U.S. health care system.
