Perioperative Nurses Week 2019

Honour a colleague by nominating them to be the Champion of Perioperative Nursing in 2019!

To celebrate Perioperative Nurses Week this year, join us in honouring the many champions among our profession.

The #PNWChamp will win registration to the ACORN 2020 conference, plus a $200 debit card, to spend how they please. 

ACORN and the state and territory perioperative nursing associations want you to nominate a colleague who may have:

  • done something exceptional for their team or patient

  • been a champ all year, demonstrating exceptionally high standards of perioperative care

  • recently begun their career as a perioperative nurse and had an amazing start putting their learning into practice

  • demonstrated a commitment to ongoing learning and shared the information and ideas for improvement with their workplace and team.

Nominate now!

Nominate a colleague on Facebook or Instagram, using the hashtag #PNWChamp.

You must include a picture of them, plus a sentence explaining why they should win the Champion of Perioperative Nursing 2019 award and the fantastic prizes. Don't forget to ask permission to use their name and photo.

We’re so excited to see you celebrate each other’s achievements!
