Pfiedler Education Customer,

Beginning December 1, Pfiedler Education will undergo a very significant upgrade of our online systems and tools to help us better serve our members and support the entire perioperative community that uses AORN guidelines, education, and programs.

We anticipate Pfiedler programs, including access to education courses, continuing education credits, and learner resources will be interrupted for approximately two weeks.

We apologize for the inconvenience. However, there will be noticeable improvements that will benefit all users when the upgrade is completed.

Why are we doing this?

As technologies rapidly evolve and advance, a new management system is imperative to:

  • Integrate and streamline operations to improve business efficiencies and your interactions with us so we may better support your needs
  • Enhance your ability to engage with other perioperative professionals online
  • Ensure that your data is protected by the latest robust security measures

How does this impact you?

While you can still visit, you will NOT be able to access:

  • AORN and Pfiedler Education coursework on our learning platform, including but not limited to Periop 101, Periop 202, Periop Mastery 2.0, ASC Academy courses, Pfiedler eLearning, on-demand webinars
  • Some membership benefits and resources
  • ORNurseLink
  • Evaluations and applications for continuing education contact hours
  • New course and program purchases or enrollments
  • The AORN mobile app
  • Applications for AORN or Chapter awards, grants, and volunteering

Please review our FAQ page —which we will update during the coming weeks—for more detailed recommendations and options for handling circumstances that may impact you and your teams.


What is NOT impacted during this transition?

  • AORN Expo 2024 registration
  • Joining AORN as a new member or renewing your membership
  • Donations to AORN Foundation
  • Presales for 2024 Guidelines for Perioperative Practice
  • eGuidelines Plus resources and tools accessed through your facility’s subscription and within your facility network (IP address)
  • CineMed AORN Perioperative Video Library
  • AORN Journal & Outpatient Surgery Magazine online
  • AORN Syntegrity
  • Access to AORN Center of Excellence in Surgical Safety learning modules for Smoke Evacuation and Prevention of RSI
  • If your facility uses HealthStream for your perioperative education such as Periop 101, you can still access your courses

We appreciate your patience during this technology upgrade process.
