Pullman Regional Hospital Receives National Perioperative Nursing Certification
May 20, 2015
Pullman Regional Hospital recently earned the CNOR® Strong designation from the Competency & Credentialing Institute (CCI). The CNOR Strong® designation is given to facilities having at least 50 percent of its operating room nursing staff CNOR certified. This is the first year CCI has awarded this elite status to facilities nationwide. All of the full-time nurses in Surgical Services at Pullman Regional Hospital are CNOR certified.
The CNOR® certification program is for perioperative nurses interested in improving and validating their knowledge and skills, and providing the highest quality care to their patients. Certification also recognizes a nurse’s commitment to professional development. It is an objective, measurable way of acknowledging the achievement of specialty knowledge beyond basic nursing preparation and RN licensure.
Patient safety and positive surgical outcomes are of the utmost importance to Pullman Regional Hospital and supporting nurses as they exceed expectations to achieve their perioperative nursing certification shows our commitment to these values.
