Perioperative Nurses

Devoted To Patient Care

AORN has worked tirelessly for over 70 years to honor the power of perioperative nursing by providing best practices, evidence-based education and professional development opportunities, advocacy, and leading-edge resources such as the Global Surgical Conference. This event is dedicated to promoting the highest standards of surgical care and showcasing the latest innovations in perioperative care.

At Neurovision Medical Products, we recognize perioperative nurses for their invaluable and essential role on the surgical team. Their expertise in preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative care ensures that the patient is in the best possible condition for the procedure. Perioperative nurses work in close partnership with surgeons, anesthesiologists, and other medical staff to ensure a safe and successful operation. They assess the patient's condition, provide emotional support, and administer medications and treatments as needed. Furthermore, their dedication to providing education and support to the patient's family and friends is commendable. Their dedication to their profession makes them an invaluable asset to the surgical team and an example of true commitment to patient care.

We are excited to be part of the cutting-edge surgical innovation taking place at AORN 2023!
These educational courses and speakers have piqued our interest, and we hope you will join us in the audience.
