“We utilize Periop 101 to educate our new RNs because formal education is a basic need for OR nurses—if you do not know why you do something, you cannot be a critical thinker. Our RN interns who have gone through the program are now confident and competent RNs fulfilling the OR nurse role. Our staff respect the ease with which those nurses assimilate into the OR environment and their ability to practice safe patient care.”
- Marilyn Hunter, RN, PhD, CNOR, Halifax Health Medical Center
