I have my CNOR.
This is additional certification that I got by taking a very difficult test.
This is additional certification that I maintain by doing 125 CEUs every 5 years.
I have re-certed 2 times.
I am also interested in volunteering for the credentialing company.
Not only as volunteer hours for my clinical ladder.
But also as something to engage me with the operating room education.
I believe that all OR nurses should be certified.
It is also good for Magnet designation.
To that end I volunteer when I can.
I am doing two days of volunteering this week for the credentialing company.
Because if not me, then who.
