Ohio PeriAnesthesia Nurses Association (OPANA)
Northwest Ohio PeriAnesthesia Nurses Association - NOPANA
We meets 4 times per year September, November, February, and May offering a contact hour approved educational program that usually focuses on PeriAnesthesia nursing. Speakers are usually from the local area or even members sharing research or projects they are currently working on. It is a great way to present your research or school project to a small group. I would be happy to help anyone put together a presentation. Interested in Certification in PeriAnesthesia Nursing? Just ask-we have an ABPANC certification coach.Contact me if you have questions or want information; firstname.lastname@example.org
