LEWISTON — Central Maine Healthcare recognized its certified nurses on Certified Nurses Day, March 19.

“I wanted to get certified to be a role model for my department and to lead by example,” said Amander Wotten, an Emergency Department nurse leader at Bridgton Hospital, which is part of Central Maine Healthcare.

“Certifications are a great way to show the community we are the very best at what we do and are constantly committed to learning more,” Wotten added. “As a leader, it builds credibility with your team and connects you to many resources that can benefit colleagues and patients alike.”

“Being certified is about intentionally gaining the knowledge and skills to provide evidence-based care to our patients,” said Gisele Castonguay, a registered nurse who is certified in wound, ostomy and continence. “It has allowed me to earn the acceptance and respect of those who refer patients to me,” she said.
