ORNAA is looking for this year's award recipients
Nominate a colleague today.
Welcome to the ORNAA website
Niagara Falls was an amazing National ORNAC Conference. We received excellent education sessions with an amazing view and great social events to reconnect with our colleagues from across the country. My favorite session was with Muriel Shewchuk where she talked about how the standards were started on her dining room table. If some of you do not know, we lost our beloved Muriel shortly after the conference. Muriel is the icon of Perioperative Nursing and we need to not only keep her legacy going but to make her proud with our ongoing efforts to be the best Perioperative Nurses we can be. We need to always strive to follow the standards, challenge ourselves and our colleagues and provide the best care possible.
Our ORNAA AGM is on October 19th, video conference across the Province. We have an excellent educational speaker presenting at our meeting. It will be a wonderful event. Please check with your representative as to where it will be held in your area.
This will be my last ORNAA President message as I move into the Past President role. It has been an honor to be your President and an experience I will never forget. I will still continue on as your Alberta Director with ORNAC for another year.
"Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today." Malcolm X
I hope everyone is ready for some rest and relaxation time with your family and friends this summer. God Bless
