    My employer requires BLS, PALS and ACLS. They pay for for the course and your time to take it also. I'm not sure if they pay for CNOR but I know as of now they don't pay extra if you have it.

    I found this same attitude with a previous employer but decided to trust my gut and get my ACLS and CNOR anyway. Several years later it added to the qualifications I could offer when applying for a job 1500 miles away. What does this kind of initiative show to a potential employer? What kind of person do you want on your OR team? Someone constantly open to improvement and learning or only doing just enough to get by? I was flown cross country and hired for an open heart surgery position despite having many years lapse since my last exposure to this specialty. I also received relocation reimbursement and live and work in the beautiful pacific NW. I'm sure my 21 years of OR experience was key but my certifications didn't hurt. I do not have a BSN however this is next on the list. I agree with everyone who's said that everything you do to improve yourself and your marketability is valuable. For me the personal satisfaction is also extremely important.
