The Operating Room Nursing certificate program is designed for registered practical nurses (RPNs) seeking to advance their practice in perioperative nursing. This certificate is based on the Canadian Nurses Association (CNA) competencies for perioperative nurses, current research, and adheres to the current Operating Room Nurses Association of Canada (ORNAC) Standards, Guidelines, and Position Statements for Perioperative Registered Nurses. Completion of the certificate includes a clinical placement where scrub skills are demonstrated at the novice level.

The Operating Room – RPN certificate program includes three intensive online theory and lab based courses over a total of six weeks. The courses are asynchronous. Weekly onsite labs are scheduled by the Program Advisor (Saturday or Sunday). A fulltime clinical placement of six weeks completes the program.

Registration in this program is restricted to CNO registered practical nurses with acute care work experience or prior operating room nurse work experience (international). All applicants must also provide a letter of recommendation from an employer along with their updated resume. Successful candidates will be offered admission into the program through the program advisor.

This is an OSAP eligible course offered with the Institute of Housing Management, and it was exactly what I needed to break into a manager role at my property management firm. I didn't study business in school, so I picked up valuable business knowledge along the way in project managment, HR, accounting and financial planning. No regrets here.
