September 10, 2007 - Nurse from MMH Receives Certification

By Stephanie Johnson
Mel Steed, RN and Clinical Nurse Manager at Marietta Memorial Hospital was recently certified with the CNOR credential. CNOR is a professional designation specifically designed for nurses whose practice emphasis is in providing care in the surgical setting.

Certification recognizes the professional achievement demonstrated when an individual nurse’s knowledge in the perioperative role exceeds that which is necessary for competency in practice. It indicates the attainment of a practice standard. Licensure and registration are based on minimum competence while certification denotes proficiency.

Research has shown that CNOR nurses are more confident in their clinical abilities and have a strong commitment to quality patient care and continuing education. Results also support the belief that patients are more confident in the care they receive from a certified nurse.
