Medical City McKinney is pleased to announce it has recently earned the CNOR® Strong designation from the Competency & Credentialing Institute (CCI). The CNOR Strong designation is given to facilities that have least 50 percent of its operating room nursing staff CNOR certified.
The CNOR® certification program is for operating room 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 and is an objective, measurable way of acknowledging the achievement of specialty knowledge beyond basic nursing preparation and RN licensure.
"We encourage national board certification for all of our nurses and are proud to have surgical nurses certified," said Ernest C. Lynch, III, FACHE, Medical City McKinney CEO. "Certification plays an important role in the assurance of high standards of care for patients."
Medical City McKinney is dedicated to excellence always in all aspects of care, including patient safety and positive surgical outcomes. Supporting nurses in achieving surgical nursing certification reinforces Medical City McKinney's commitment to the care and improvement of human life.
