Standards for Perioperative Nursing in Australia
The New ACORN Standards have superseded the 16th edition of Standards for Perioperative Nursing in Australia.
However, there are some standards from the 16th edition which are yet to be updated due to ongoing work in organisations outside of ACORN. As such, these standards still remain pertinent to the clinical setting and should be followed by all perioperative practitioners. They can be accessed through the links below.
