We have some amazing nurses at Sheltering Arms! Above and beyond their nursing degrees and licensure, 26 of our RNs are Certified Rehabilitation Registered Nurses (CRRNs) and 10 recently earned the new Certified Brain Injury Specialist (CBIS) designation. We have Certified Professional Coders (CPCs) and Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) on our team as well. All of these certifications reflect their dedication to the profession and to caring for their patients.
