More than 35,000 perioperative nurses currently hold the CNOR credential. Research shows that certified nurses have greater job satisfaction, and are more confident in their practice. Hospitals and institutions around the world support the CNOR program not only because it distinguishes them as an employer of choice, but also because they know a certified nursing workforce is correlated with decreases in negative patient outcomes.
Association of perioperative Registered Nurses (AORN) is accredited with distinction as a provider of continuing nursing education by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation.
AORN is provider-approved by the California Board of Registered Nursing, Provider Number CEP 13019. Check with your state board of nursing for acceptability of education sessions for re-licensure.
