Ambulatory Periop 101: A Core Curriculum

What is Periop 101 for ambulatory surgery centers?
Ambulatory Periop 101 is a program used to train new perioperative nurses. It consists of 26 online learning modules, with two new modules added specifically for the ambulatory customer that cover pre and postoperative care of the patient in an ambulatory setting. The modules are delivered through AORN's e-learning platform. 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.
