NWH Leads the Way in Nursing Certification
While NWH has similarities to many hospitals, something special makes NWH stand out from other facilities – a remarkably high level of CNOR certification.
NWH boasts an almost 80% certification level among its eligible staff. Why has it achieved this remarkable level? The staff at NWH believes a strong commitment to quality, safe patient care must be backed by an equally strong commitment to CNOR certification. To achieve its certification goals, NWH has a fully integrated plan from education to rewards.
NWH has been nationally recognized for its work by receiving both Magnet designation and being awarded the Planetree Hospital with Distinction, the only facility to achieve both of these highly regarded awards. While these accomplishments are noteworthy, the most gratifying recognition is at the staff level where nurses see and experience the value of certification every day at the patient bedside.
CNOR is a definition not an acronym. CNOR certification is defined as: "the documented validation of the professional achievement of identified standards of practice by an individual registered nurse providing care for patients before, during and after surgery." CNOR means that you have demonstrated the knowledge and skills that denote competency in the specialized field of perioperative nursing.
