ORNAA is looking for this year's award recipients

Nominate a colleague today.

2015 Perioperative Nurses Week, November 9 to 13

Welcome to the ORNAA website


I am pleased to addressing all of our members for the first time as your new President of ORNAA. I have big shoes to fill as our Past President, Lucia Pfeuti has been an amazing leader and I personally want to thank her for all her hard work and dedication to Perioperative Nurses and their Education.

I am also the President of NCORNA and I live in Edmonton with my wonderful family.

This year, with the ORNAC changes to membership, we were lucky to have 18 months covered with our annual membership directly with ORNAC. Membership will be open in the fall for the January - December 2016 year. I encourage everyone to register to continue their membership and encourage your colleagues who are not members to join. To register, you go on to ornacmembers.ca. Please ensure you select the correct district to ensure you receive any important information from your district representative and to have the opportunity to apply for funding from your local district.

We are having our annual AGM October 17th from 0900 - 1100. We have a great speaker lined up so watch for more information in the fall and mark your calendars.

I hope everyone has time this summer to spend with your loved ones and have a well deserved rest. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about ORNAA.
