Inspirations Conference, November 1-3|
Registration is now open for our 2013 Inspirations Conference!
Early Bird Registration Extended to September 7
Welcome to OPANA
The Ontario PeriAnesthesia Nurses Association is a professional association for nurses involved in the care of clients who will shortly be, presently are or have just recently been under the influence of a sedative or anesthetic agent.
Perianesthesia nursing is considered a specialty area of nursing practice and our association has taken responsibility to define the scope of perianesthesia nursing practice.
Nursing roles include patient care, education, administration, management, consultation, advocacy and research. Our nursing practice is comprised of nursing processes, decision making, critical thinking and inquiry.
Dear OPANA colleagues,
Summer is finally here and it feels like it is passing me by quickly. I am looking forward to spending my August vacation with my family.
Your OPANA conference committee and a very dedicated team of volunteers are working hard on the Inspirations Conference set for November 1, 2 &3 at the Nottawasaga Inn Resort, Alliston Ontario. The Nottawasaga Inn is in a beautiful area of Ontario with grounds for walking, relaxing and enjoying the company of your colleagues. It is short commute from Toronto, Barrie and Orillia and has easy access for anyone travelling from Hwy 400.
The conference registration is now open through our secure web site and as you will see, the rates are very reasonable. The conference committee planners have worked hard to put this conference together with a spectacular line up of speakers and want to promote the entire conference; therefore there are no one day attendance options. There will be a get together on Friday night before the conference and I am hoping you can join the Board of Directors to introduce yourself and enjoy the camaraderie and a signature drink with us. Ask questions, share ideas, or ask about volunteering for OPANA!
The certification exam for Peri-Anesthesia Nursing is well underway and we are hoping that Paula Ferguson, the President of NAPANc, will be able to share progress and writing dates with us at the conference.
I look forward to meeting with you all at the Inspirations Conference!
Wishing you All a happy and safe summer,
