Congratulations to our own Marisa R. Swain, M.S.N., R.N.-B.C., O.N.C.,
C.N.S.- a Clinical Nurse Specialist at HOI and VP of the Orange County
Chapter of the
National Association of Orthopaedic Nurses (NAON). Swain served previously as a reviewer for the Orthopaedic Nursing Review
Course, an opportunity only given to a handful selected nationwide!
Her most recent accomplishment was her contribution in reviewing
rd edition of Scope and Standards for Orthopaedic Nursing Practice
. This publication sets forth the practice guidelines and expectations
for orthopedic nurses across the US. Orthopedic nurse practices are reviewed
in terms of optimization of medical standards, prevention of illness and
injury, pain alleviation for patients during diagnosis and treatment,
and advocacy in the care for patients, their family, and the community.
HUGE KUDOS to Marisa for this distinguished accomplishment!
