More Hospitals Require RNs to Obtain Stroke Certification

Stroke is the 4th leading cause of death in the nation, and costs billions in lost productivity for the American workforce. Many hospitals now mandate stroke certification for registered nurses on staff, a requirement that can be met online in approximately 2 hours, via the American Heart Association. If they have not done so already, RNs are highly encouraged to become a member at AHA and enroll in the educational webinars and stroke scale group tests that are offered.
