Declaring November 8-12, 2010 as PeriOperative Nurse Week in Kansas City.

 

WHEREAS, the periOperative nurse today is a highly technical, sophisticated, and exacting registered nurse working in the operating room providing nursing care and managing the operating room environment; and

 

WHEREAS, the surgical patient is going through a major crisis in his/her life; and
