Abstract

The acute nursing shortage, particularly in perioperative nursing, was a driving force for the creation of a registered nurse (RN) internship program. The program was developed according to the Association of periOperative Nurses (AORN) Standards and Recommended Practices and national practice. Program evaluations led to positive changes in the program. This article describes the process that was followed and the unique features of the program.
