Operating Room Nurses Association of Ontario

Our Organization

PHILOSOPHY STATEMENT: The Operating Room Nurses Association of Ontario (ORNAO) is an organization of professional nurses dedicated to the promotion of excellence in perioperative nursing in the immediate preoperative, intraoperative and the immediate postoperative periods of the patient's surgical experience.

The Association believes that perioperative nursing is a dynamic process guided by theoretical knowledge, ethical principles, research, caring practice and specialized clinical skills. Perioperative nurses respond to complex and changing needs of persons during a crucial period of the surgical experience. The scope of practice is continually evolving as nurses respond to societal and technological changes.
