Fundamentals of Operating Room Management Certificate of Mastery presented in partnership with the Competency & Credentialing Institute
Tuesday, September 29

Beth Bozzelli, MBA, RN, CNOR, CSSM
Assistant Vice President, Surgical Services
HCA Healthcare

After this session you’ll be able to:

  1. Describe the tasks performed by surgical services leaders.
  2. Discuss examples of the knowledge needed to manage in the surgical services work environment.
  3. Identify two emerging trends that affect the delivery of surgical care in the United States.

Why this is important:
The Fundamentals of OR Management Certificate of Mastery (FORM COM) program is designed to familiarize leaders and managers in surgical services with the skills and knowledge needed to perform in this demanding work environment. The FORM COM program is built on the findings of the Certified Surgical Services Manager (CSSM) Job Analysis performed by Competency and Credentialing Institute (CCI) in 2016. That job analysis study compiled descriptive information about the tasks performed by surgical services leaders and managers as well as the knowledge needed to perform those tasks. The task and knowledge statements of the job analysis cover seven major areas of practice.

This certificate program is meant to help participants achieve the stated learning outcomes through education, training, and learning activities, and it is not restricted to registered nurses. The Fundamentals of OR Management Certificate of Mastery is awarded upon satisfactory completion of all course activities and designates that participants have completed the required education/training and demonstrated accomplishment of the learning outcomes.

By attending this workshop, you will earn a certificate of completion as well as 12.0 CE credits.
