Perioperative Nurses Week
Perioperative Nurses Week was first celebrated in 2009. Every October since then perioperative nurses have celebrated their important work together. In 2016, for the first time, PNW also generated community awareness through radio and television interviews, newspaper articles and workplace displays.
