On 15 February of each year, we celebrate the European Perioperative Nursing Day (EPND). The aim of this day is to encourage reflection and focus not only on the quality and a high level of provided care but also on the human dimension of our profession.

Spread the word on European Perioperative Nursing Day!

The #EPND2023 theme is “Learn, Lead, Inspire”. EORNA invites OR nurses and friends to use this day to highlight the contributions of operating nurses and the role of education in the high level of care provided by our profession.

➡️ What can the perioperative nursing community accomplish through the power of education? ⬅️
