Research shows that nurses who earn the CNOR credential have greater confidence in their clinical practice, having validated their specialized knowledge in perioperative nursing. Thus, a team of CNOR certified nurses who have mastered the standards of perioperative practice furthers a culture of professionalism and has been correlated to improved outcomes in surgical patients. At CCI, we call that CNOR Strong.
Two criteria must be met for your facility to be recognized by CCI as CNOR Strong:
- At least 50% of eligible perioperative nursing is staff CNOR certified.
- Facility consistently recognizes and rewards nurses who become CNOR certified or recertified.
If your facility meets these eligibility criteria, please fill out the brief application. If you are approved, your facility will receive a CNOR Strong e-Certificate to your email inbox.
A reminder will be sent to you and your manager each year, asking you to reapply and confirm eligibility to maintain your facility's CNOR Strong status.
