The standards of perioperative nursing provide a mechanism to delineate the responsibilities of RNs engaged in practice in the perioperative setting. These standards serve as the basis for quality monitoring and evaluation systems; databases; regulatory systems; the development and evaluation of nursing service delivery systems and organizational structures; certification activities; job descriptions and performance appraisals; agency policies, procedures, and protocols; and educational offerings or lifelong learning activities. The standards of perioperative nursing apply to all RNs engaged in perioperative practice, regardless of clinical setting, practice setting, or educational preparation.
