Welcome to ORNAA


Hello and Welcome to ORNAA!!!

Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Jill Clark, and I am from Red Deer, Alberta. I work at the Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre as a frontline staff member. I have been an OR Nurse for 17 years and am truly passionate about Perioperative Nursing and supporting OR Nurses in our profession. I am the current President of CORNA (Central Operating Room Nurses Association) and have been in this role for 5 years. I have sat on the ORNAA Board for the last 5 years, holding positions of Secretary, President-Elect and now President since June 2023.

I want to introduce you to my ORNAA Board. These hard-working individuals volunteer countless hours and are extremely dedicated to Perioperative Nursing.

  • Past-President: Bryana Hahn (NCORNA)
  • Webmaster: Randi Galenzoski (SORNA)
  • Treasurer: Melissa Ronan (SCORNA)
  • Education Director: Helen MacKay (NCORNA)
  • Secretary: Heather Lanouette (NCORNA)
  • Conference Liaison: Gloria Nemecek (SORNA)
  • Alberta Director: Bryana Hahn (NCORNA)
  • District Representatives (without Portfolio): Toni Milos (SCORNA), Rebeca Orellana (CORNA)

I value these amazing and passionate people and appreciate their ongoing assistance and support.

ORNAA is currently undergoing work in Strategic Planning to improve our organization for our members. We have utilized our survey feedback from our members, consulted with an outside expert in organizational success, and are currently working on priorities and goal setting for ORNAA's future. Strategic Planning is a complex process, one that needs strong and passionate people involved for its success. I am grateful for the ORNAA Board and their dedication to better this organization for all Perioperative Nurses that we serve. Strategic Planning will continue over the next several months with long-term planning extending into the next few years. We will be sharing our priorities and exciting new outcomes along the way with our membership. Stay tuned for upcoming opportunities for our members to engage and become more involved. I am looking forward to the next few years, the transformation that will happen, and a new path forward for this wonderful organization.

I have so much pride and respect for this organization. My wish is to support the ORNAA Board and all Members in the best way I can during this next phase of transition and transformation. Thank you for everyone's dedication and perseverance in your profession.
