WHO MAY PARTICIPATE IN THE CNOR EXAM TAKE 2 PROGRAM?
Perioperative nurses who meet CNOR eligibility requirements at the time of application may participate in the program. The CNOR Exam Take 2 program is only available for initial certification and may not be used for recertification.
HOW DO I APPLY FOR CNOR EXAM TAKE 2?
You may apply to take the CNOR exam at any time by creating a CCI account, or logging into your existing account. Once you login, click “Apply for Certification” to begin, and choose “CNOR Exam – Take 2” from the available CNOR options.
If you are a facility registering five or more CNOR-eligible nurses, download our CNOR Exam Take 2 Facility Order Form. Payment must be made by the facility and include a minimum of five eligible nurses. For complete details on the CNOR Exam Take 2 Facility program, read our Terms and Conditions.
WHEN CAN I APPLY TO TAKE MY FIRST CNOR EXAM?
You may apply at any time and take the exam twice before your 12-month period ends. Participants must be mindful of CCI's application and testing window procedures, as outlined in CCI’s CNOR Candidate Handbook. CCI highly recommends you download this important resource and familiarize yourself with the testing guidelines. Once your application is accepted, you may schedule your exam within a 3-month testing window.
WHAT IF I DO NOT PASS THE EXAM ON MY FIRST ATTEMPT?
You may take the exam twice before your 12-month period ends; however, you may not reapply to take the second exam until your first 3-month testing window closes, as outlined in CCI’s CNOR Candidate Handbook. To apply for your second exam, wait until your first testing window has closed, and begin the process as before. Login to your CCI account, select “Apply for Certification,” and select CNOR. You will apply for the exam as before; however, payment is not required.
CAN I EXTEND MY 12-MONTH PERIOD?
No. Extensions of the 12-month period are not allowed.
