    At Cincinnati, we have 29 percent of our clinic RN’s  have a  certification.  We have been offering review course to them to help as an incentive.  (18 of 63 nurses)

    We are trying to get some benchmarking information on CPON/CPHON/BMT-CN certification from other outpatient units across the country. What percentage of your staff nurses are certified? We have 25 staff nurses, 7 are certified. we are trying to increase that number and want to know how other places are doing in this endeavor! Thanks!
