Lamb reaches two milestones

ELIZABETHTOWN — Bladen County Hospital recently recognized Christina Lamb, BSN, RN II after she completed two important milestones in a nurses’ journey.

The first was recognition as a RN II. Cape Fear Valley Health System offers a Clinical Ladder Program that provides registered nurses with opportunities for advancement. The program is designed to recognize and retain direct clinical care nurses. Participants are involved in promoting excellence in nursing practice through professional growth, supporting the organization, advancing clinical expertise, and contributing to health of the community.

Participation in the Clinical Ladder Program is voluntary. Advancement is an achievement, not an expectation of every registered nurse. The Clinical Ladder consists of three levels: Level II, Level III and Level IV.

In May, Lamb completed her bachelor of science in nursing at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, thus achieving the second milestone. Completing the BSN offers Lamb the opportunity to advance to Clinical Ladder III.

Upon Lamb’s graduation from Bladen Community College in 2013, Bladen County Hospital was pleased to have her join the surgical services team. She has been an asset from the beginning, offering quality patient care not only in surgery but also on the Medical Surgical Unit. In addition, Lamb has been a preceptor for new nurses and served on the Nurse’s Week Committee.

Lamb resides in Elizabethtown with her husband and children.
