We are pleased to recognize a group of HopeWest registered nurses and certified nurse assistants who recently received accreditation through the Hospice and Palliative Credentialing Center (HPCC). The HPCC offers specialty certification for all levels of the hospice and palliative care teams including RNs and CNAs.

This accreditation shows that our RNs and CNAs are committed to safe, ethical and evidence-based care in an ever-evolving health care professional role.
