Notice to Current Programs ( all inquires should be sent to

ORNAC is currently in the process of revising the approval and renewal guidelines for Perioperative Programs.  We anticipate this information to be updated within the next few months.  However, in order to allow ample time for all programs to renew under the new guidelines, we are providing all currently approved programs with a one-year extension. For those up for renewal, we will advise you when the information on the new renewal process has been updated.  For now, no further action is required and there is no need to resubmit for your renewal until one year from your date of renewal.
Thank-you for participating in the Perioperative Program review and for your efforts in continuing to grow the next generation of perioperative nurses.

ORNAC is not currently accepting any new applications for Perioperative Program approvals as the approval process is being revised. Once revised, the application process will be posted here.

Current Application Fees: $1,500.00  (Payment must be received prior to commencement of approval process)
All applications must be submitted in duplicate (2 copies).
