CRNFA Emeritus Status

Emeritus Status

CCI offers CRNFAs who are retiring from professional nursing the option of CRNFA Emeritus status, or CRNFA(E). CCI established the Emeritus Status in 1995 to recognize retired operating room nurses’ service and commitment to the perioperative profession, as well as their achievement and maintenance of the CNOR and CRNFA credentials. Please note, once you retire your CRNFA credential, it cannot be reactivated. Only the CNOR credential may be reactivated with the Portfolio program.

Effective January 1, 2012 you must currently hold the CRNFA credential in good standing to apply for CRNFA Emeritus status. The CRNFA emeritus credential is not available if your CRNFA credential has lapsed.


The one-time fee for Emeritus Status is $95 for all CRNFAs, regardless of AORN membership status.
