The Ontario PeriAnesthesia Nurses Association is a professional association for nurses involved in the care of clients who will shortly be, presently are or have just recently been under the influence of a sedative or anesthetic agent.

Nurses of the Ontario PeriAnesthesia Nursing Association are leaders in providing compassionate, high quality care focusing on the unique needs of patients and their families throughout their PeriAnesthesia journey until they are well on their way to the Road to Recovery.

Perianesthesia nursing is considered a specialty area of nursing practice and our association has taken responsibility to define the scope of perianesthesia nursing practice.

Nursing roles include patient care, education, administration, management, consultation, advocacy and research. Our nursing practice is comprised of nursing processes, decision making, critical thinking and inquiry.
