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.
