March 25: GI Nurses and Associates Day

ginurses1Today take some time to honor those GI nurses, aides, and technologists who are saving lives every day by making colonoscopies safe and comfortable.

GI nurses and the people who work with them are specially trained to  provide care to patients with known or suspected gastrointestinal problems who are undergoing diagnostic or therapeutic treatment.  Although most of their training is provided on the job, they can receive national certification by meeting the requirements of the American Board of Gastroenterology Nurses and passing a written examination.

So thank you for holding our hands, easing our fears, and bringing us some juice and our shoes while we recovered from sedation.
