Tammy Lyles and Judy Schwinn, registered nurses in the surgical nursing unit at Lawrence Memorial Hospital, each earned the Certified Medical-Surgical Registered Nurse (CMSRN) credential in June by successfully completing the national certification exam through the Academy of Medical-Surgical Nurses and the Medical-Surgical Nursing Certification Board.
The certification recognizes achievement of the highest standards of medical-surgical nursing practice, resulting in promotion of high-quality patient care, documentation of specialized knowledge base and expanded career opportunities.
Lyles began her career at LMH in April 1999.
Schwinn began her nursing career 35 years ago and has been with LMH since June 1991. She is a member of the hospital's Unit Based Council, a member of the Education Council and occasionally fills in as house supervisor.
