This program is designed to provide basic didactic perioperative education that will give the novice OR nurse the rationale and theory needed to provide safe patient care. It is intended to be used in conjunction with a clinical preceptorship.

Developed by expert surgical nurse-authors, Periop 101: A Core Curriculum™ is a comprehensive, online education program based on the latest, evidence-based AORN Perioperative Standards and Recommended Practices.
