AORN Surgical Conference and Expo


The AORN Global Surgical Conference and Expo 2018 will take place from March 24th – March 28th, 2018. These 4 days will consist of:

  • Mandatory meetings we must attend to become familiar with AORN legislature and changes proposed with AORN Guidelines for Perioperative Practice. We will then vote on these changes which will affect all of the national AORN chapters.
  • There will be educational sessions scheduled to attend from early morning to early evening. It’s exciting to look at what is offered each day and formulate your own schedule with which ones you want to attend.
  • AORN has planned well known speakers to present motivational and life changing events they have experienced.
  • Usually there will be an evening dinner meeting sponsored by a well-known surgical company. They always have a very interesting topic.
