The ACORN Standards for Perioperative Nursing in Australia (the Standards) constitute the specialty knowledge of the perioperative nursing community in Australia and represent the accepted standard for clinical and professional practice. Individual standards are regularly reviewed and updated by a team of member volunteers according to a rigorous, structured process managed by ACORN's Standards Committee and the ACORN Professional Standards Officer. 

ACORN commenced a six-month trial of a Standards Discussion Forum on 17th February 2020. During the trial  ACORN is not providing a service to answer specific details about the ACORN Standards for Perioperative Nursing in Australia. Instead ACORN encourages its members and Standards subscribers to take part in the discussion forum which can be accessed at Discussion forum

All at ACORN  look forward to your feedback on the Discussion Forum.
