Abstract:
Abstract presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: The development of perioperative nursing competency standards is part of an ongoing debate surrounding societal demands for accountability and safer patient outcomes. However, knowledge of perioperative competency standards is not universal among perioperative nurses; more fundamentally, these standards do not capture all aspects of perioperative nurses competence. Yet lack of competence resulting in serious adverse events has been identified nationally and internationally. This dichotomy needed resolution; following development of a self-assessment of competency tool and a literature review published in AORN Journal, a survey of ACORN members was undertaken in 2010. The results of that survey and recommendations are presented.
