NIH Stroke Certification: The Time is Now

By Karen Siroky, RN, MSN

Now, more than ever, organizations are striving to provide the best care possible to stroke patients. Completion of the NIH stroke certification program is becoming a standard in many organizations. We encourage you to attain your NIH stroke certification now, rather than later.

There are multiple benefits to gaining your stroke certification now:

1. You will improve your ability to identify and manage patients with early stroke symptoms.

2. You can complete your stroke certification in “pieces,” allowing more time to comprehend and absorb the material.

3. The stroke certification program is currently free. However, the NIH, American Heart Association and the American Stroke Association indicate that they may begin to charge a fee for the program in the near future.

4. The NIH stroke certification is available for your smart phone or online, making it easy and accessible.

Don't miss your opportunity to obtain free certification now! Resources where you can obtain the NIH Stroke Certification FREE of charge include the American Heart Association and the American Stroke Association.
