Connect With Nurses
The questions, concerns, and issues in the OR that drive your company's product development, customer service tactics, and problem-solving initiatives are the same that drive AORN's work to develop the evidence-based Perioperative Standards and Recommended Practices (RPs) and cutting-edge educational programs. Working together AORN and industry can help to improve patient outcomes.
"Product Selection: Key Considerations" provides a great reference for facilitating discussion and information sharing for industry and nurses alike. This booklet was developed by AORN to drive informed conversations between industry professionals and nurses as they seek solutions to challenges in the OR.
AORN Associate Members receive the AORN Journal, participate in chapter activities, interact on ORNurseLink, and receive discounted member rates for publications.
The AORN Journal provides high quality, peer-reviewed articles featuring practice information, research study summaries, management and staff development guidance, as well as valuable updates, continuing education articles, and practical information.
The AORN Perioperative Standards and Recommend Practices (RPs) reflect the perioperative RN's scope of professional responsibility and provide essential information for the delivery of safe patient care and a safe work environment. They guide perioperative nursing practice while allowing for flexibility in all settings where surgical and other invasive procedures are performed.

As new OR technologies are developed and implemented, health care industry representatives (HCIRs) are often called upon to provide education and answer questions about products that may be in use during a surgical procedure. AORN offers two OR Protocol programs through HealthStream that are designed to provide the HCIRs with the knowledge required to safely be in the perioperative environment.
