Welcome to the CNOR Family
Congratulations on being part of the CNOR community! You are among an elite group of more than 40,000 nurses internationally who hold the CNOR credential.
The professional accomplishment achieved by becoming a CNOR demonstrates your passion for outstanding patient care, and maintaining the credential represents a deep personal commitment to continued nursing excellence.
The Certified Surgical Services Manager (CSSM) certification is the only perioperative management credential for perioperative managers, directors, and nurses who oversee personnel, a budget, business unit, or service line. Earning the CSSM is a mark of distinction and recognizes the important role managers play in delivering safe patient care.
The Only Perioperative Management Credential
CCI offers the Clinical Nurse Specialist Perioperative Certification credential (CNS-CP) for advanced practice registered nurses who have completed graduate preparation (Master’s or Doctorate) in the CNS role. We offer this credential to recognize the important role clinical nurse specialists have in promoting optimal perioperative patient outcomes.

Certification Coaches Program
CCI’s Coaches’ program creates mentoring opportunities for certified nurses to promote certification at their facilities. Coaches guide the certification process by sharing their experiences and knowledge, and motivating other nurses with helpful tools from CCI.
Volunteers are a crucial part of educational product creation and the certification development process. We could not offer the most exceptional credentialing services without the contributions of volunteers’ time, talent and expertise. Should you be chosen to be a volunteer and complete your service, you will receive points toward your next recertification.
Recertifying Your CNOR Credential
The rapid rate of change in the modern perioperative setting requires a conscious effort to maintain competency. The CNOR credential is conferred for a period of five years. To demonstrate your continued dedication to perioperative excellence, you may recertify your credential.
