6 Hot Nursing Certifications: Featuring Kaye/Bassman’s Jill Jarufe Nursing Recruiter

Dallas, Texas, 4/11/2011: “It’s no secret that choosing a specialization can help you stand out from the nursing crowd. But with dozens of certifications available, deciding which to pursue can be challenging. If you’ve yet to find a specialty you’re passionate about or are looking to change clinical focus, here are six high-demand certifications to consider.

— Gerontological Nurse or Nurse Practitioner: AARP predicts that during each day of 2011 at least 7,000 baby boomers will celebrate their 65th birthday. With so many people entering their golden years, the need for geriatric medical care is exponentially growing, says Carole Kenner, dean of Northeastern University’s School of Nursing.

— Critical Care Registered Nurse (CCRN): “With the population in general aging, we’re seeing a big demand for critical care, perioperative services and the emergency room,” says Jill Jarufe, a nursing recruiter with Dallas-based Kaye/Bassman International Corporation. But critical care isn’t just about dealing with heart attacks and fractured hips. Often considered the cream of the clinical crop, CCRNs serve all segments of the population: adult, pediatric and neonatal.
