It is highly recommended that before purchasing any online AORN courses that you download the computer specifications and share them with your facility IT department to ensure there are no compatibility issues. If you are planning on taking the course on a home computer, please make sure your computer is compatible.

AORN is unable to provide technical support to Mac users so it is encouraged that you test a Mac compatibility with any AORN online course before purchase. This test can be done by enrolling for free into the Introduction to the PNDS course and viewing it with a Mac computer. Please make sure you can see each page and complete the course.

Please note: Due to the release of the latest version of Oracle Java, you may need to reduce your Java security settings or revert to a previous version of Oracle Java to complete an online course.
