Date:10/20/2010

Atlanta, GA, 20 October, 2010 Elsevier / MC Strategies, a pioneer in providing e-learning solutions to more than 1,300 healthcare organizations, has partnered with the Association of periOperative Registered Nurses (AORN) to develop the latest module for Mosby's Nursing Skills: Perioperative Collection, the only perioperative-specific set of nursing skills approved by AORN to be consistent with the Standards and Recommended Practices.

Authored by practicing Certified Nurse, Operating Room (CNOR1) nurses, this interactive, online resource helps perioperative nurses achieve the ever-changing standards of care. Content for the skills collection is consistent with AORN's Perioperative Standards and Recommended Practices.

"Perioperative Nursing Skills will provide a superior resource for nurses practicing within the OR," said Linda Groah, MSN, RN, CNOR, NEA-BC, FAAN, Executive Director and CEO, AORN. "Relied upon for their critical-thinking skills and professional judgment, perioperative nurses require current information that will help them excel and provide quality patient care. This product will encourage nurses to practice in accordance with AORN recommendations and standards from patient assessment through post-surgery patient education."

The primary references for Perioperative Nursing Skills include AORN Perioperative Standards and Recommended Practices, AORN Journal, Alexander's Care of the Patient in Surgery (Elsevier), The Joint Commission National Patient Safety Goals, Journal of PeriAnesthesia Nursing (Elsevier), and the Association of Surgical Technologists (AST).

"The addition of perioperative skills allows us to now offer hospitals a complete skills collection," said Barbara Nelson Cullen, Vice President of Healthcare e-Learning for Elsevier / MC Strategies. "Working alongside AORN to develop these skills, we have created a product that provides our customers with the best of the best evidence-based skills that will enhance patient safety and overall patient care."

Designed to meet the nurse education and training needs of healthcare organizations today, Mosby's Nursing Skills combines a powerful reference product with convenient competency management system functionality to form one comprehensive resource. Mosby's Nursing Skills offers nurses and nurse educators convenient online access to current, evidence-based skills and procedures.
