OHIO – The Joint Commission announced today the creation of a pathway to board certification in Joint Commission rules and inspection practices. “We are excited to offer a new qualification to those who seek more letters after their name, than in their name… Oh and by the way it’s Doctor Eldrige, I didn’t spend 6 months earning my PhD in Nursing Simulation Education for nothing,” Phyllis Eldrige joked while speaking with GomerBlog.
The Joint Commission Board Certification, or JCBC, is intended to assist those who want authority to make decisions, without all the pesky hardwork of medical school and residency. Certification requires at least 5 years non-clinical experience (strictly away from any kind of patient care) while claiming to still be a clinician or nurse, a penchant for treating flimsy opinion as fact, and a willingness to create new ways to interfere in patient care.
In related news, a spokesman for the ACPaGCWIND, the Association to Confuse Patients and Give Credit Where It’s Not Due, lauded the creation of the JCBC, saying, “Now everyone will be able to say they are board certified too, and the patients won’t know any better! The number of ‘doctors’ bringing their white coats in for re-embroidery is through the roof!”
