DescriptionRegistered nursing programs may only provide students with minimal exposure to specialty areas and, as a result, fewer nurses are considering perioperative nursing as a career choice. The Grande Prairie Regional College Perioperative Nursing Certificate program has been developed to fill this educational need by utilizing the current Operating Room Nurses Association of Canada (ORNAC) recommended core curriculum: Perioperative Programs for Registered Nurses.

This program includes theory content from nursing, sciences and the humanities. The focus is on individualized, patient-centered care. Using the principles of adult learning, the program is delivered by using on line strategies and interactive discussions. Clinical assignments are designed to provide the learner with opportunities to apply perioperative registered nursing theory to practice.
