Perioperative Nurse Week
Perioperative Nurse Week is a time to recognize and honor perioperative nurses for their important role and commitment to safe patient care. Perioperative Nurse Week is November 9-15, 2014.
It's almost time. Join AORN in celebrating the wonderful people in perioperative nursing.
Share Your Proud Moments
During Perioperative Nurse Week, connect with us on social media to share your proudest moments as a perioperative professional.
Make a gift in honor of a mentor, colleague or chapter leader who has impacted your life, and the AORN Foundation will send a card in recognition to your honoree during PNW.

Anyone can ask their elected officials for a proclamation. Make sure to speak with your chapter leaders, state council president and state legislative coordinator to coordinate your efforts. (See past proclamations.)
