The National Association of PeriAnesthesia Nurses of Canada has committed to offering the nation's PeriAnesthesia nurses a venue for education and networking annually.


Each year, one of the association's provinces or territories volunteers or is asked to host the National Conference.  It is then the responsibility of that province or territory to strike up a committee from amongst its volunteers to plan, develop and deliver a conference for all interested PeriAnesthesia nurses from across the country.


The conference is filled with topics relevant to the practice of the PeriAnesthesia nurse, primarily related to postoperative care of the surgical patient, with reference to best practice patient care and practice standards. There is also information regarding PreAdmission units, general health care issues and practices, and controversial discussions.


At the conference, entertainment and activities are offered in a fun filled atmosphere as PeriAnesthesia nurses from across the country meet again after a year, and get caught up at this fabulous meeting.  To get an idea of the fun in store for you, please click here.  Plan to attend all of these conferences, offered in May/June each year.  You will be glad you made the trip!


This year, 2013, there will be no conference, since the 2012 National PeriAnesthesia Nurses conference was held in October, 2012 in Nova Scotia.  In order to return the annual conference to the normal timeline of spring time each year, the next National PeriAnesthesia Nurses conference will be held in May/June, 2014 in Regina Saskatchewan.  Please make arrangements NOW to attend this sure-to-be-outstanding conference.  Save your vacation time and your pennies in order to attend.
