Cuyuna Regional Medical Center Medical Surgical Unit Coordinator Jackie Holmes, R.N., of Deerwood recently became a Certified Medical Surgical Registered Nurse to provide patients with the highest standard of medical-surgical nursing care.
She recently passed the Medical-Surgical Nursing board certification examination, a competency-based exam that provides a valid and reliable assessment of the clinical knowledge and skills of registered nurses in the medical-surgical specialty after initial Registered Nurse licensure. The Accreditation Board for Specialty Nursing Certification accredits the certification which is valid for five years.
A member of CRMC’s staff since 2002, Holmes takes care of patients admitted to the hospital with nonsurgical (medical) and surgical conditions. Her focus includes illness management, disease prevention, and health promotion; but most importantly, advocating for and educating her patients.
Holmes earned her Bachelor of Science degree in nursing at Minnesota State University-Moorhead. She has served in her current position since 2018 and also worked at CRMC as a Hospital Charge Nurse, Medical/Surgical Nurse, and postpartum Registered Nurse.
