Specialty Certification is an important way for clinicians to validate their knowledge, experience and clinical judgement in a particular area of practice. It allows nurses to pursue specific areas of interest and increase skills for the advanced care of our patients. Spaulding is pleased to partner with the Diana Davis Spencer Foundation to provide financial support for our nurses seeking specialty certification. Nurses who receive specialty certification may be reimbursed for the cost of the exam and receive a monetary award.
