Periop Mastery Program

Reduce patient risk by increasing nursing knowledge

The Periop Mastery Program, based on AORN Perioperative Standards and Recommended Practices, is a collection of online learning modules designed to test a nurse's knowledge level, identify knowledge gaps, and help nurses gain confidence and mastery in perioperative practice.

To help the learner overcome knowledge gaps, the Periop Mastery Program provides educational resources for each module until mastery is achieved. The program utilizes the latest scientific advancements in understanding how the human brain acquires, retains and recalls information at critical times.

Periop Mastery Program Reports

Participant progress can be tracked with a variety of reports that administrators can access at any time and share with students and educators. These reports track individual student progress and can also provide information on how students responded to specific questions potentially identifying knowledge gaps. This enables administrators to focus education in a specific area to improve competencies.
