I am taking a poll on what kind of CEU offerings Perioperative Nurses would be interested in. I know that to maintain CNOR certification you have to have 300. What would you like to learn about?

I'd like to learn why 2 different hopsitals that I've worked at don't reimburse for the CNOR certification and why most people don't know and don't care what CNOR means.

No kidding, I was thinking of taking the exam. Then I found out how much it is, and that you don't get any incentive for having the CNOR. I mean, I know that I'm a good OR nurse and I love learning new things. I don't need 4 extra letters to tell myself or anyone else this.

I dont need it but I am taking the test March 1. It is always good to learn new things and get something in return for it. Most places I have job hunted at ask if I am CNOR and alot of places "prefer" it..... I dont know if I can make much more than what I am making now though..... I will also go for a BSN the end of this year, just to have it......
