Pineville, LA… Louisiana College congratulates Dr. Elizabeth Battalora, chair of the Division of Nursing and Associate Professor of Nursing at Louisiana College, on her recent selection to serve on the CNOR (Certified Nurse Operating Room) Item/Test Form Review Committee.  Battalora was selected by CCI (Competency & Credentialing Institute) which is the body of AORN (Association of Operating Room Nurses) that credentials operating room nurses to become certified in their specialty. 

“This is a tremendous honor for me,” explains Battalora, who has been a member of AORN since 1983 and certified with CNOR since 1987. In February, 2009, Battalora will travel to Denver, Colorado to participate in committee meetings. The work of the committee will provide the foundation for future CNOR exams.
