Welcome to the ORNAA website


Happy Perioperative Nurses Week everyone! ORNAC's theme this year is Excellence. Every Patient. Every Time. It is a great theme, as it describes what every perioperative nurse should strive for each and every day. Be sure to take some time to celebrate the week with your colleagues and friends!

A reminder to everyone that the ORNAC membership registration is still open for the 2015 year. Membership is $65 until December 31, 2014 and registration can be accessed on the ORNAC website https://www.ornac.ca/membership/register.phtml . Be sure to register before the end of the year to avoid the late fee.

Finally, I would like to extend a warm thank-you to the 2014 ORNAA Provincial Conference Planning Committee. Thanks to this dedicated group of individuals, the delegates who attended this year's conference enjoyed an exciting educational program and some fabulous social events! If you weren't able to attend the Provincial Conference, be sure to mark your calendar for the ORNAC National Conference in Edmonton, May 3-7th, 2015.

As this year comes to a close, I wish each of you time to relax, to be rejuvenated, and to spend with loved ones.

Kind regards,

Lucia Pfeuti RN, BN, CPN(C)
ORNAA President
ORNAC Provincial Director (Alberta)
