Why Drinking Water All Day Long Is Not the Best Way to Stay Hydrated
Dehydration is a drag on human performance. It can cause fatigue and sap endurance among athletes, according to a 2018 study in the journal Frontiers in Physiology. Even mild dehydration can interfere with a person’s mood or ability to concentrate.

Water is cheap and healthy. And drinking H2O is an effective way for most people to stay hydrated. The National A

An estimated 1.8 trillion bits of plastic waste have gathered along a single stretch of the Pacific Ocean between Hawaii and California, an exponential increase since the 1970s.

Certification

Why Is Certification Important?

Certification is becoming an important factor in the healthcare industry.  More and more employers are looking at certification as a way to assess whether an individual possesses the skills and knowledge required for successful performance in a particular job role. Why are employers looking for this assurance? It’s because they want to hire the best qualified individual who will make a positive contribution to quality patient care.

By becoming certified in your field of expertise, and by maintaining your competency year after year, you are saying to your employer that you:

  • Have met standards that have been established and verified by a third party organization.
  • Are dedicated to maintaining quality in your work on a regular basis.

These are powerful statements that speak volumes about you as a professional.  Certification indeed demonstrates to your employer, and to the public, that you are committed to your profession and that you want to continue to learn and grow.

NOTE:

  • In addition to employers, certain state and federal laws also require certification in order to fully practice in the field.
  • Studies have shown that individuals who are certified in their field have higher salaries and better promotion opportunities.
