The American Nurses Association (ANA) provides the following Call for Public Review
received from the Association of periOperative Registered Nurses (AORN), an organizational affiliate of ANA:
The AORN Nursing Practice Committee is inviting your participation in the review of the proposed AORN Standards of Perioperative Nursing. The comment period will close September 14, 2009. The review can be accessed through AORN.org (spotlight section) or at: www.aorn.org/PracticeResources/AORNStandardsAndRecommendedPractices/StandardsComments
They encourage you to review the document and complete the validation survey with open text comments whenever possible. This has been a two year project in which they purchased and reviewed several specialty nursing standards, participated in the public review process for the ANA administrative standards, and purchased ANA Scope and Standards, Administrative standards and the ANA Nursing’s Social Policy Statement for all committee members to strive for consistency with ANA.
They look forward to connecting with you by reviewing your feedback on the survey.
