Roger Casey, MSN, RN, CEN, FAEN
Base Chief, Northwest MedStar in Richland, WA
Roger Casey, MSN, RN, CEN, FAEN is always striving to take his career to the next level.
He went from an Air Force Flight Medic to an emergency department trauma coordinator and is now the base chief for Northwest MedStar critical care transport service.
He’s been an emergency nurse for 18 years, has held his CEN credential for 11, and was recently inducted by the Emergency Nurses Association (ENA) as one of only 120 members of the Academy of Emergency Nursing.
He has also volunteered with the Board of Certification for Emergency Nursing (BCEN®) in growing levels of responsibility, starting out as a CEN Item Writer eight years ago, and now serving on the CEN Exam Construction Review Committee, and on the BCEN Board of Directors.
Earning a CEN “validates the work you do,” said Casey. “It really does set you apart from your peers. It’s an inner drive – CEN nurses have gone above and beyond, raised the bar and set a new level of excellence. For the patient, it’s comforting to know they’re being taken care of by a nurse with extra knowledge, someone with those extra letters behind their name.” Read the full story.
