Perioperative Nurse Week 2017

Perioperative Nurse Week 2017

Perioperative Nurses!

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.

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.

AORN Foundation Supporting the Nurses Who Make Surgery Safe

Honor Your Colleagues

Perioperative Nurse Week is the perfect time to send a message of respect and appreciation to a colleague, mentor, or even your entire team, through a donation made in their honor to the AORN Foundation. In response to your gift, we will send a personal note of appreciation to your honoree to let them know you’ve made a contribution in their name. Your generosity recognizes the outstanding work of your associates and supports the educational needs of other nurses through the AORN Foundation.
