Student Nurses Program

Discover more about the perioperative profession by joining the Student Program as part of AORN Global Surgical Conference & Expo 2022 on Tuesday, March 22.


Your day will begin with an exciting interactive presentation that follows a patient through the perioperative experience from admission to discharge.

You’ll have the opportunity to:

  • move through the case processing information related to the patient’s care as it becomes available and acting on it.
  • build clinical reasoning and real-time problem-solving skills as you actively engage in determining and customizing care based on the patient’s changing situation.
  • gain a better understanding of quality and patient safety in the perioperative setting.

Following the session, you’ll be invited to tour the Expo Hall where you can:

  • learn about the latest technologies, products, and services for the surgical suite
  • participate in virtual reality simulations
  • meet with recruiters from top health systems
  • enjoy a complimentary lunch
  • interact with your fellow student nurses
