Welcome Message

Dear Colleagues,

The COVID-19 pandemic has been a test of resilience for nurses across Europe. EORNA stands with you at this difficult time.

We looked forward to seeing you for our biennial Congress in Stavanger, Norway, in May 2021 but as the health and safety of our attendees is our utmost priority, we have chosen “safety first” and decided to postpone the Congress until 2022. Please save the date – Thursday 12 May – Sunday 15 May 2022 in Stavanger. We will meet again.

There is however an urgent need for perioperative nurses across Europe to connect and to share experiences in the light of the COVID-19 pandemic and for this reason EORNA is hosting a Virtual Congress in May 2021. Running over three days, from Thursday 27 – Saturday 29 May 2021, it will deliver a programme of focused content including keynotes, educational sessions and a series of “Conversations About COVID-19”. We want as many perioperative nurses as possible to attend which is why this three-day Congress will be offered to nurses at a low registration rate of EUR 18.
More information will be provided as planning evolves.

We look forward to seeing you virtually in May 2021.

May Karam
EORNA President
