AORN perioperative nursing classes

  1. Can anyone list off some hospitals that offer this class? I prefer mid-west hospitals, but anywhere that you know of will be helpful. I was on the AORN website and they are supposed to have a directory listing but the page is blank and I really want to start doing some research into this. Thanks in advance!!!

    dont know about the states but I"m am currently enrolled in it.I'm able to do it online, with actual online class from my house once a week. I know that we have students from all over canada. maybe its cheaper than down there, but probably not. My first final is this thurs. Its a great class for those of us with limited / no scholling in OR. HEAVY reading and mega tonnes of it. it should consist of four modules or learning areas, first class 4010- area divided into physioligy, drugs, postion instruments etc. all guided by the standards. 4030- actual surguries and tech and instruments used 4020- lab and 4040 which is your practicum or can be credited if currently working OR.( i need 310 hrs) I am finding it very difficult to work and study. But it can be done. WHen finished the certification will be an added bonus for job preference.[BANANA]only 4 more months to go![/BANANA]

    I am in a 9 month perioperative program that is hospital based. It is a 40 hour a week job and I get paid as an RN while I am going through it. It is an awesome deal!

    Thanks! I did see Monday that it was back up, but over the weekend (when I wanted to do research) it was down, of course! Thanks again!

    Would you mind sharing where you are at? Also, if you know of any other hospitals that offer a similar orientation, that would be great! Thanks!!!
