Perioperative Nurses Week

Specializing in patient surgical care, perioperative RNs fill a very important role in making sure procedures run smoothly.

Please join us in celebrating Perioperative Nurses Week November 13-19 as we recognize their hard work and raise awareness to their essential roles on our surgical teams.
