AORN New to Profession Membership

AORN Proudly Supports New Perioperative Professionals


The perioperative profession is growing and, as a professional association, it is our mission to ensure all new perioperative professionals have the resources they need to keep patients safe and to advance in their career. We know starting in the field can be challenging, and new career salaries often don’t support association memberships. This is why AORN is proud to introduce our new $99 membership category for perioperative nurses who have two years or less experience in the operating room.

We’re so excited to welcome new perioperative nurses to our association.
