Ambulatory Periop 101

What is Periop 101 for ambulatory surgery centers?
Ambulatory Periop 101 is a program used to train new perioperative nurses. It consists of 28 online learning modules, with two new modules specifically for the ambulatory customer that cover pre- and postoperative care of the patient in an ambulatory setting. Each learning module includes required reading and suggested videos from AORN's perioperative nursing video library. Ambulatory Periop 101 is designed as a blended program, to be given in conjunction with a clinical preceptorship.

Why should I offer Ambulatory Periop 101 to my staff? 

  • Ambulatory Periop 101 is written by expert perioperative nurse-authors, peer-reviewed, and always current with the latest AORN Guidelines for Perioperative Practice.

  • Offering evidence-based education to nurses has been shown to reduce staff turnover by as much as 25% and to improve nurse satisfaction. Outcomes like these will elevate your facility to employer-of-choice.

  • Hospitals nationwide have used our evidence-based education program to recruit, educate, and retain new perioperative nurses since 1999.

If you already have Periop 101 at your facility, you can use any of your prepaid student seats for Ambulatory Periop 101 seats, or order more seats without having to sign a new agreement.
