This article describes a hospital-based initiative that provides support for nurses who wish to become certified in a nursing specialty. Because certification becomes increasingly important to individual nurses and acute care organizations, opportunities to support nurses in this endeavor need to be developed. Through the efforts of the director of education and the support of nursing administration, study groups aimed toward assisting nurses to become certified have grown in number throughout this hospital.
