Abstract/OtherAbstract:
This article provides an overview of AORN's Project Alpha and identifies multiple opportunities for RNs to promote the nursing profession and the perioperative nursing specialty. Individual and group Project Alpha activities can be used to enhance the education of health care consumers and other professionals about the essential role of perioperative nurses in the care of patients undergoing operative and other invasive procedures. The author suggests innovative strategies for AORN members to use in planning Project Alpha activities.
