"Being nationally certified in hospice and palliative nursing
demonstrates my commitment to my patients and my profession."
"CHPPN Certification establishes me as an expert in caring for children with serious illness and their families. It lets the public know I value the highest professional and ethical standards."
"I am advancing the quality of care by pursuing professional growth through
continuing education and by mentoring new hospice and palliative nurses."
Every day, hospice and palliative nurses are transforming the care and culture of serious illness by
providing patient-centered, family-focused care.
