CineMed AORN Online Perioperative Education

Realistic. Attainable. Measurable.

  • Deliver consistent evidence-based perioperative training.
  • Reduce errors.
  • Improve patient safety.


Special package pricing for hospital networks.

According to studies published by the NIH, a root cause of medical errors results from deficiencies in education, training, orientation, and experience. Supplementing your hospital network’s perioperative nurse education curriculum by using the CineMed AORN online perioperative education modules can improve patient safety and reduce errors.

How Does the CineMed AORN Online Perioperative Education Subscription Work?

The program includes 43 modules focused on perioperative patient and staff safety; each module includes a video, study guide, and post-test.

Subscriptions are available for single hospitals; however, we encourage hospital networks to purchase an enterprise subscription package to maintain a consistent education platform for all perioperative staff.

Who Benefits From This Program?

  • Registered nurses (RNs) currently enrolled in Periop 101
  • New and experienced RNs transferring to the perioperative suite from other nursing specialties
  • Sterile processing team members
  • Non-RN perioperative team members (e.g., surgical technologists, surgical assistants/aides)
  • Other RNs involved in operative/invasive procedures in non-traditional OR settings (e.g., Endoscopy, OB, Cath Lab, Radiology)
  • Nursing students at schools of nursing
