Welcome to ORNAA

On behalf of the ORNAA Executive, and myself, I want to send along our admiration for the continued dedication and hard work that is happening across the province and into the northern territories through yet another wave of this pandemic. Many of our executive members have been part of the redeployment to the ICU, PARR and beyond and our hope as numbers continue to decrease, is that everyone is "home" in the Operating Room before the holidays!

For those passionate about continued education and growth within the perioperative field, we hope that you have been enjoying the additional opportunities to learn as the different districts have opened up their zoom sessions to all ORNAA members to participate. It has been really great to see new names and faces joining sessions! As always, please continue to check ORNAA's website for educational opportunities and upcoming events.

Please watch your emails for online education opportunities from ORNAC as well. This fall they launched their Master Class Webinar series, and they are planning to continue on a monthly basis if vendors continue to participate.

I want to send a huge congratulations to ORNAA Past-president Randi Galenzoski for winning the Gloria Stephens Educator award at the ORNAC National Conference back in May. Randi has accomplished some amazing feats both with ORNAA and as a Nurse Educator in support of perioperative nursing and the win is much deserved!

As a reminder, it is almost time to register or renew your ORNAC membership for the 2022 year. With registration being based on the exact date you apply, rather than a set date, ORNAC will continue to send a reminder email 1 month prior to your renewal date. Registration fees for ORNAC members are $65 and ORNAC Associate categories range from $55-$80. To learn more about ORNAC, please visit www.ornac.ca. Please be sure to choose the correct district that you reside in so that educational monies can be used where you live.

As the new President for ORNAA, I am humbled to be working for our members to push perioperative nursing forward, representing our group to CARNA and other nursing special interest groups. I am currently sitting at the ORNAC level as the Alberta Director, and am excited to be part of the National Conference Planning Committee for 2023. There are big announcements coming, so stay tuned!

Please feel free to email me at or reach out to your local district representatives at any time. We are always looking for new people looking to get involved at a district level or an executive level.

Bryana Hahn, RN BN
ORNAA President
