Nursing is one of healthcare's most varied professions, making it possible for almost anyone to find an appealing and challenging role in the system. For example, RNs with an interest in surgery can become perioperative nurses. Perioperative nurses fill either a circulating or scrub role during surgical procedures, and they also have duties before and after surgery.
The CNOR exam is one part of the CNOR certification process for operating room nurses. CCI defines CNOR certification as a "voluntary recognition program [which] acknowledges... an individual nurse's performance which exceeds that for competent practice in the perioperative setting." #CNOR #perioperative #nurse
