Nurses Applaud OR Today Webinar Series

The recent OR Today webinar “Continuous Professional Development for Perioperative Nurse Leaders” presented by Jim Stobinski, PhD, RN, CNOR, CSSM, Chief Executive Officer of the Competency & Credentialing Institute (CCI), drew positive reviews.

 

In the webinar, Stobinski reviewed the known demographics of current perioperative nurse leaders, detailed a trend impacting recruitment into the perioperative nurse leader role and discussed a potential scenario affecting the Continuous Professional Development (CPD) choices of leaders/managers in the OR.

 

More than 100 people attended the live webinar and many more have viewed a recording of the webinar online at https://ortoday.com/events/continuous-professional-development-for-perioperative-nurse-leaders/.

 

The positive reviews came from a wide range of health care professionals, including nurse managers, directors of perioperative services and more.

 

“The webinar presentation today was very valuable in describing the ongoing needs and areas of needed improvement for the perioperative nurse leaders and those that aspire to be,” said D. Huckfeldt, Nurse Manager.

 

“I am a perioperative nurse leader and struggle with areas for self assessment to improve from a high-volume model to a value-based care model. This webinar has shed light on a direction on how to perform a self-assessment with peer review to document a path for success. Leaders still need to be led by other professionals,” shared K. Gonzales, Clinical Supervisor.

 

“This was a very informative and educational webinar, I will be looking forward to what future topics will be. Loved having the leading leaders providing such in-depth and current education,” said T. Goodall, Unit-based Educator.

 

“I appreciate the topics provided through the OR Today’s webinars. They are current and pertinent to the issues we are facing today,” said J. Bollig, Director of Perioperative Services.

 

“These webinars are a great way for perioperative professionals to come together for one hour and get education and updates related specifically to our specialty … it was a great way to utilize one hour of my very busy day,” shared R. Martini, Perioperative Manager.

 

“I find OR Today’s webinars on trend for current topics of concern. With all things changing on an almost daily basis, this is not an easy task. Great Job, OR Today,” said T. Stanford, OR Analyst.
