Arlene L. Taylor of Whidbey General Hospital has received national recognition for reaching a significant milestone in the nursing profession.

Since 1991, the Freeland resident has consistently maintained her Critical Care Registered Nurse certification offered through the American Association of Critical Care Nurses Certification Corporation.

Taylor is one of 1,234 CCRNs being honored this year by the corporation and the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses for 20 years of continuous certification.

CCRN certification is one of the most advanced professional credentials that can be achieved by a nurse in the field of acute and critical care. As a result, the designation is highly regarded as recognition of advanced knowledge and clinical expertise in the care of acutely and critically ill patients and their families.

There are currently more than 55,000 CCRN-certified nurses practicing worldwide who specialize in the care of adult, pediatric and neonatal patient populations.
