Individuals undergoing invasive surgical and/or anesthetic procedures have the right to be cared for by appropriately qualified staff in a safe supportive environment.
European Operating Room Nurses Association, EORNA, was founded in 1980 by a group of innovative European nurses with the aim of enhancing and developing perioperative patient care across Europe. With its 23 Member Associations coming from 22 Countries, EORNA is the only recognised and leading professional organisation in the field of perioperative nursing bringing together representatives from all quarters of Europe.
Our vision is to enhance and develop better perioperative patient care across Europe. While being the influential voice of perioperative nurses in Europe we link and collaborate with relevant European and international organisations.
