Perioperative Nurses Week
PNW17 proudly supported by Molnlycke
It's one month until that time of year when we celebrate our profession.
Perioperative Nurses Week – Sunday 8 October to Saturday 14 October.
We invite you to champion our national campaign, with the theme 'Strength and unity through membership', which aims to highlight the importance of being a member of your professional association and raise awareness of the many benefits including education, professional development and networking.
This year we have six great prizes to be won:
- three iPads for individuals who get behind ACORN and champion the campaign
- three education resource bundles (hard copy of and e-subscription to our new 'Surgical hand antisepsis, gowning and gloving' resource) for a remote, rural and metropolitan hospital.
How can I get involved?
1. Post the poster and logo
At the following links you will find a logo and poster in A3 or A4 size that you can print and post in a suitable area (e.g. tea room or staff notice board). The centrefold of the spring journal can also be pulled out as an A3 poster.
