Four Hospice of the Bluegrass chaplains achieve status of board certification

Newly certified chaplains honored during the Association of Professional Chaplains’ annual Grand Banquet.

Hospice of the Bluegrass Chaplains Diane Munoz, Alice Tremaine, Nancy Cox and Lynda Woodard attained the distinction of board certified chaplain and were honored on June 29 at the Association of Professional Chaplains’ Grand Banquet in Orlando, Fla. 

The APC Grand Banquet was held during the APC 2013 Annual Conference in Orlando. This year’s event celebrated the achievements of over 200 new board certified, provisional certified and associate certified chaplains. Chaplains are eligible to pursue certification through the Board of Chaplaincy Certification Inc., an affiliate of APC, following completion of post-graduate degree work and a rigorous program of clinical training that prepares them to serve as chaplains in institutional settings. The status of board certified chaplain represents a high level of commitment and professional achievement, as well as recognition by one’s peers and the board of directors of a nationally recognized professional association.

The Association of Professional Chaplains, a national nonprofit organization based in Schaumburg, IL, is a multifaith association established to promote competent professional chaplaincy care through advocacy, education, standards of practice and service to its members. Professional chaplains work throughout the country in many specialized settings, including health care, corporations, correctional facilities and the military.
