Please note that the courses in this certificate are being revised to reflect the 2019 national standards and are currently not available for registration.
In communication with partner hospitals we have learned that post-graduate nursing students in OR courses, will not be accepted into a clinical placement unless they have recent acute care experience or have worked as a nurse in the operating room in the past. For nurses with prior OR experience this could include work outside of Canada.
Once the revised program is ready to launch there will be an application process for selection of appropriate students based on the above criteria. For those of you who wish to pursue a career as a nurse in the Operating Room we suggest that you gain nursing experience in acute care settings.
The Operating Room Nursing certificate program is designed for registered nurses (RNs) employed in and/or seeking to advance their practice in perioperative nursing. You will learn nursing assessment; evidence-informed nursing interventions; and how to develop collaborative and consultative partnerships with surgical clients, their support systems and other health-care practitioners. You will also develop high-level critical thinking, care planning, leadership and professional practice skills.
This certificate is based on the Canadian Nurses Association (CNA) competencies for perioperative nurses and completion of the certificate academically prepares students for the Perioperative Certification Exam.
