Ashland native Dawn Blankenship, a KDMC nurse for 18 years; and Ironton native Sherri Burton, a KDMC nurse of seven years; both received recognition by the Certified Registered Nurse Infusion (CRNI®) credentialing program.

Infusion therapy includes all activities associated with the administration of fluids, nutrients or medications, as well as injectable medications. Professional certification demonstrates a commitment to excellence in patient care and signifies that a professional nurse has met a standard of achievement.

The CRNI® examination program received accreditation from the American Board of Nursing Specialties (ABNS) in July 2006. ABNS is the standard-setting body for specialty nursing certification programs and offers a very stringent and comprehensive accreditation process. ABNS is one of two nationally recognized organizations to accredit nursing certification programs.
