Let’s honor our profession in a big way this year by inviting colleagues and community to celebrate safe care for surgical patients.
AORN has ideas to help.
There's a Digital Party Goin' On
Share the love of your profession across the AORN social world. Upload your selfies and pics of your periop pals on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter with #PeriopBecause and #AORN and tell us why you love what you do, where you do it, or who you love on your team or facility.
It’s easy, just take a sheet of paper, write #PeriopBecause across the top in large letters and then add your thoughts below. As pictures are posted, we’ll share them in Periop Insider and on the AORN website.
Take a look at AORN nurses and their #PeriopBecause for ideas.
Sweets for the Sweet
Plan a party for your team and your coworkers. Just download this cake topper design and send it to your favorite baker (or supermarket), tell them what size you’d like, and they’ll do the rest. As we say at AORN, “Feed them and they will come!”
Decorate Your Workplace
AORN has created posters you can download and print. Print a bunch and post them wherever you want to raise awareness of this year’s Perioperative Nurse Week.
Spread the Word
Perioperative Nurse Week is a perfect time to share more information about the important work you do with your elected officials. Please take action and persuade them to proclaim November 6–12, 2016 Perioperative Nurse Week in your city or state using the following tools.
