Birthing Center nurses honored for certifications

Posted: Friday, February 6, 2015

Parkview Huntington Hospital, 2001 Stults Road, has honored six of its nurses for receiving inpatient obstetrics nursing certification from the National Certification Corporation. Registered nurses earning the certification are Marcy Faurote, Angela Skinner, Kari Zollinger, Abigail Vanderpool, Shari Reust and Pamela Sprowl.

To earn the certification, nurses must have completed two years of practice in the field, must have worked a minimum of 2,000 hours and must pass a national examination. After passing the exam, each nurse must pursue continuing education on select topics.

The certification focuses on seven areas, including maternal factors, fetal assessment and labor and delivery. The six newly-certified nurses are part of a Family Birthing Center team at PHH that also includes Angela Lehman, a certified lactation specialist. Together, they have more than 50 years of experience in the hospital setting.

Parkview Huntington Hospital held a celebration on Thursday, January 29, to honor the six registered nurses from its Family Birthing Center who have earned the inpatient obstetric nursing certification.
