President’s Message                       October 2017                                                              

 

Colleagues,

I can’t believe it is fall already. I love the unique colors of fall. It reminds me of the unique differences of our chapter’s membership. You all work in different practice settings, at different hours, in different specialties and have different dreams and aspirations. I hope one of those aspirations is to come to at least one AORN meeting this year and to attend the 2018 AORN Expo and Surgical Conference in New Orleans, LA on March 24-28, 2018.

Our chapter is looking for 10 energetic members to represent our chapter as a delegate. This is a great opportunity to listen, ask questions and vote on issues that affect perioperative nursing and your professional organization. If you are interested in attending the 2018 AORN Expo and Surgical Conference as a chapter delegate, please read the attached delegate responsibilities document, complete the attached delegate application form and return to me (jklrnfa1@aol.com) by Nov 1, 2017.

 

We have many exciting presentations this year and I look forward to seeing you there.

 

Jeanne

AORN is proud to introduce a new $99 membership category for perioperative nurses who have two years or less experience in the operating room.

 

As a professional association, it is AORN’s mission to ensure all perioperative professionals have the resources they need to keep patients safe and to advance in their career. AORN knows that starting in the field can be challenging, and new career salaries often don’t support association memberships.
