Bring Your OR Nurse to Banff!

OR Nurses are invited to participate in the CPD for ESS Program in Banff Jan 17 + 18, 2018

Following very positive evaluations after their participation in our last program, RNs are invited, and sponsored, to return to the ESS Program in Banff in 2018. In addition to attending the Wednesday and Thursday dinner programs and Thursday morning sessions, there will be a Thursday lunch/networking meeting followed by dedicated program stream for rural OR Nursing. Participants will be encouraged to share knowledge and experience on several topics that address quality and sustainability in rural ORs.

Registration fee for all OR nurses will be $50, thanks to the generous sponsorship of RhPAP, RCCbc, and SRPC. A $500 bursary will be offered to the first 20 OR nurses to register for this event.
