Abstract:
Poster presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: Certification is a process for professional credentialing that acknowledges a level of achievement using competencies and standards. The achievement of CNOR is indicitative of the perioperative nurses ability to provide improved outcomes and quality care. A certified nurse is better prepared to provide our patients with evidence-based care. The Columbia River Region Chapter felt that as part of our mission for our members and all of our perioperative colleagues that a need was identified to provide a CNOR preperation course. It was felt that this information would enable them to receive information to confidently prepare and take the CNOR exam. As president of the chapter, and with the help of a board member, we sought finicial support from our two local Magnet« facilities to help support the speaker. This support was obtained and as a result, the fees were kept low to encourage nurses to attend. We registrated 106 nurses who attended the two-day program. To date, 50 have passed the CNOR exam. A survey was done prior to the beginning of the program and after it was complete. Currently, we are in the process of developing and sending out a one-year follow-up to all the participants. We are measuring if the exam was taken and passed, and if the course adequately prepared them. We also are interested if their facility has recognized them in some way and if certification has changed their practice.
