PANAW Celebrations by Ohio PeriAnesthesia Nurses Association February 2019 Pictures. 
PeriAnesthesia Nurse Awareness Week February 4-10, 2019  

Nurses working in preanesthesia and postanesthesia care, ambulatory surgery, and pain management are dedicated to caring for patients and their families. They are passionate about what they do as nurses. PANAW is an opportunity to educate nursing colleagues and the community about the professionalism and passionate care that is delivered by perianesthesia nurses every day. Plan to celebrate and recognize your colleagues during PANAW 2019!
