About the Program:
This Perioperative 101 program is a non-credit training program that can prepare Registered Nurses who want to specialize and become Operating Room Nurses, leaving you with a certificate from the Association of periOperative Registered Nurse (AORN). A certification in perioperative nursing gives professional nurses the necessary experience and knowledge to succeed in this practice area.

The program combines a standardized, evidence-based online instruction developed by the Association of Perioperative Registered Nurses (AORN) with hands-on skill labs taught by Aims community College and a clinical practicum lead by experienced perioperative nurses at a local health care partner such as UC Health or Banner.  The program is delivered in a hybrid format, combining in-class and online learning activities.  The students will gain hands-on practice in the lab setting to learn the activities of the operating room circulator and scrub nurse.
