After careful review and consideration, CCI has decided to streamline the Certified Foundational Perioperative Nurse (CFPN®) credential by removing all components outside of the Knowledge-Based Test. CCI has also added an extension year for individuals to remain as active CFPN® certificants while pursuing our other credentials. These changes will go into effect on November 9, 2023. While we have removed these components, CCI upholds the highest standards of excellence in perioperative nursing and maintains CFPN® as an accredited and reputable credential. In this post, we will clarify the details regarding such updates.
