Susan L Bindon
Maintaining competence is a professional responsibility for nurses. Individual nurses are accountable for their practice, as outlined in the American Nurses Association's Nursing: Scope and Standards of Practice. Nurses across clinical settings face the sometimes daunting challenge of staying abreast of regulatory mandates, practice changes, equipment updates, and other workplace expectations. In the complex, evolving perioperative setting, professional development is a priority, and the need for ongoing education is critical...

Performing both surgical and imaging procedures in a hybrid OR can increase efficiency by reducing the number of patient transfers between departments and the number of patient hand overs between personnel. A hybrid OR is, however, a complex environment that requires integrating the knowledge and skills of personnel from multiple disciplines to create a successful workflow. When magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) equipment is installed in the hybrid OR, additional precautions are required to help ensure the environment is safe for patients and personnel...

Jennifer Van Camp, Sharon Chappy
New graduates account for the highest numbers of nurses entering and exiting the profession. Turnover is costly, especially in specialty settings. Nurse residency programs are used to retain new graduates and assist with their transition to nursing practice. The purpose of this systematic review of the literature was to examine new graduate nurse residency programs, residents' perceived satisfaction, and retention rates, and to make recommendations for implementation in perioperative settings. Results indicate increased retention rates for new graduates participating in residency programs and that residency participants experienced greater satisfaction with their orientation than those not participating in residency programs...

Poldi Tschirch, Kristina Leyden, Claudine Dufrene, Sharon Land
This article describes one school's experience in providing a perioperative nursing course as a first clinical course in a bachelor of science in nursing curriculum. This innovation reframes the perspective on perioperative nursing from that of an elective clinical specialty that is not essential to basic nursing education to a practice setting that provides key foundational clinical learning experiences for the novice nursing student. A strong academic-practice partnership; effective preparation for key stakeholders including nursing staff members, preceptors, and students; and collaboration with AORN were essential elements in the success of this clinical learning innovation...

Juliana Mower
Perioperative nurses who enjoy teaching may wish to become staff development educators. The shift to this new role requires a transition period during which the new educator acquires the knowledge, skills, and attitudes integral to mastering the job. A systematic approach to achieving baseline competencies in the educator role helps to ensure a successful conversion from providing direct patient care to supporting the educational needs of staff members.

Individuals with debilitating facial injuries and deformities have achieved significant improvement of aesthetic form and function after undergoing a face transplantation. The involvement of surgical technologists and perioperative nurses in the care of the recipient and donor plays a critical role in the success of these procedures. There are unique challenges that staff members may be presented with when caring for a donor and recipient undergoing a face transplantation, including less comfort with and knowledge of the surgical procedure and instrumentation, an increased amount of equipment and personnel in the OR, donor and recipient admission and discharge care, and increased shift length...
