AAOS, the National Association of Orthopaedic Nurses (NAON), and the National Association of Orthopaedic Technologists (NAOT) have collaborated to develop the Nursing and Allied Health Program. The program consists of six courses for registered and licensed practical nurses, physician assistants, orthopaedic technologists, and physical and occupational therapists. In addition, applications have been made to the orthopaedic technologists, physician assistants, and the American Nursing Credentialing Center to provide multiple types of contact hours for these courses.

To attend any of the Nursing and Allied Health courses, you need to register for the AAOS Annual Meeting and purchase a ticket for each course. Please note registration is limited. No one is admitted without a name badge and ticket.
