2 Lt. Cmdr. Erica Diamond, a Registered Nurse Certified in Inpatient Obstetrics, talked to NMCP nurses about the importance of certifications during the Certified Nurses Day event on March 19. Right now theres a huge push to elevate our profession to be equivalent to that of a terminal degree, like lawyers and doctors, Diamond said.
