Last week the AORN announced their legislative priorities for 2011. Included in these priorities was further expanding the scope of practice on RNs by necessitating a circulating role throughout every surgical procedure conducted in an operating room.
The AORN's legislative priorities expanded upon the reccomendations made by the Future of Nursing committee's report: "The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health" and even cite the report itself in their press release.
