The Association of periOperative Registered Nurses (AORN) was founded in 1949 to establish a national community for operating room nurses who sought to share best practices for patients undergoing surgery. Today, we unite and empower perioperative nurses, healthcare organizations, and industry partners to support safe surgery for every patient, every time.
You’ll find AORN resources used in every hospital and ambulatory center across the country, including:
- The evidence-based Guidelines for Perioperative Practice
- Perioperative staff education
- Career and leadership development guidance
- Facility and health system solutions
