NAON National Association of Orthopaedic Nurses

The mission of the National Association of Orthopaedic Nurses is to advance the quality of musculoskeletal health care by promoting excellence in research, education, and nursing practice.
The National Association of Orthopaedic Nurses promotes a culture of professional collaboration developed through trust, respect, integrity and passion for the specialty of orthopaedics.
The National Association of Orthopaedic Nurses believes the specialty of orthopaedic nursing should set forth the highest standards of nursing practice for optimum patient care. We believe in the concept of man as a total being having physical, psychological, social, emotional, and spiritual needs. The orthopaedic nurse in cooperation with the patient and other members of the health team utilizes this concept of man to assess, plan, implement, and evaluate a plan of patient care. This nursing process is essential to assure that each patient achieves the highest possible level of health. We are committed to the advancement of the profession of nursing. We believe that educational programs that foster personal and professional growth will develop competence and excellence in nursing practice for the orthopaedic nurse. We support and encourage research and advanced clinical practice as the foundation for expertise in nursing practice.
