Danielle Hoffman, a registered nurse in HSHS Sacred Heart Hospital’s rehabilitation services department, recently earned her certification in rehabilitation nursing (CCRN). Attaining CRRN certification validates a person’s professional standing as an experienced rehabilitation nurse with a documented level of knowledge in this specialized area of practice. Rehabilitation nursing practice includes care management and treatment of conditions such as stroke, traumatic brain injury, aging issues, MS, diabetes, co-morbidities, cardiovascular illness, arthritis, and spinal cord injury.
Area business and industry will be able to obtain a higher level of training on Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) compliance issues because of new agreement that names Chippewa Valley Technical College as a host site for the National Safety Education Center (NSEC). CVTC will now offer NSEC-recognized OSHA training services through its OSHA Institute Training Center. The agreement is a partnership with the Northern Illinois University College of Engineering and Engineering Technology, which is the location of the NSEC offices.
