CPMC Surgery RN Continues Education
The Surgery Department at Cabinet Peaks Medical Center is eager to announce the achievement of nurse, Joe Jameson, RN, who recently received his Periop 101 Certification.
As surgical care advances, so does the scope of nurses' responsibilities. Operating Room (OR) nurses are now referred to as Perioperative Registered Nurses to more accurately reflect their duties immediately before, during, and after surgery. A certification in perioperative nursing gives professional nurses the necessary experience and knowledge to succeed in this practice area.
When asked about the training course, Jameson, who has been with CPMC for 4 ½ years stated, "The Periop 101 class I took helped me transition from working in the Acute Care Department to working in the Surgery Department. It provided a comprehensive overview of nursing in the surgery setting and has made me more capable in the operating room."
Jameson continued, "Education is essential for all nurses to be competent at their jobs. This was my first step of education perioperative nursing."
Erin Moe, RN, and Manager of the CPMC Surgery Department explained, "Joe worked hard over the past few months to complete the Perioperative Course. The course is designed to prep nurses for the perioperative environment and gear them towards obtaining the CNOR certification. Joe brings several years of nursing experience to the surgery department!"
