Developed by expert surgical nurse-authors, Periop 101: A Core Curriculumâ„¢ is a comprehensive, online education program based on the latest, evidence-based Guidelines for Perioperative Practice (previously AORN's AORN Perioperative Standards and Recommended Practices). This program is used by hospitals and ambulatory surgery centers nationwide to recruit, educate, and retain operating room nurses, and can reduce turnover by as much as 25%.

Designed to be used in conjunction with a clinical preceptorship, Periop 101 helps build confidence and satisfaction among your staff, elevates your facility to an employer-of-choice, and can be tremendous support for reducing patient risk.

  • Novice perioperative nurses
