Books & Publications

AORN publications are specifically designed to help OR and ambulatory professionals implement Guidelines for Perioperative Practice (previously Perioperative Standards and Recommended Practices). With updated content released throughout year, our publications not only keep you and your colleagues current on the latest evidence-based industry information, but also provide you with tools for facility development and management. 

Explore the variety of publications AORN has to offer – from the monthly, peer-reviewed AORN Journal to Ambulatory Surgery Center Resources and more – to learn how you can provide optimal outcomes for patients undergoing operative and other invasive procedures.

Members of AORN enjoy exclusive access to the AORN Journal as well as discounts up to 50% on perioperative publications at the AORN Bookstore, including Guidelines for Perioperative Practice.
