PERU — Chris Debosik, a registered nurse at Illinois Valley Community Hospital, has been certified by the American Board of Certification for Gastroenterology Nurses (ABCGN).

Debosik is an Oglesby resident who has worked at IVCH for 21 years.

Gastroenterology is the branch of medicine that deals with the stomach and intestines.  The ABCGN website says board certification indicates a nurse possesses the knowledge to care for patients who have gastrointestinal disorders.

Certification is awarded to individuals who meet eligibility criteria based on experience and who pass an examination covering a broad range of knowledge and skills relevant to their professional practice.

Debosik is one of more than 4,000 nurses nationwide who have earned certification through the ABCGN process.
