Support Your Team to Manage the Return of Surgical Volume

As your healthcare facilities ramp up surgical volumes and move away from emergency operations strategies, it is important to reestablish high quality, evidence-based practice among surgical team members.

AORN’s COVID-19 Return to Work courses will refresh and reinforce standards of practice with education that addresses specific focus areas. Your perioperative nurses will return to full volume with a greater ability to provide safe patient care. 

These courses are for:

  • Perioperative nurses transitioning back to the OR from other departments or prolonged absence
  • Perioperative nurses who want a refresher
  • ASC nurses
  • Nurses in procedural areas including GI, endoscopy, cath labs, interventional radiology
