AORN Chapter Education

Pfiedler partners with medical device companies to bring accredited continuing education (CEs) to nurses and allied health (CA State Board of Nursing, IAHCSMM, CBSPD, CDR, ASRT, CRCE, etc.).

We work together to make healthcare safer by providing cutting edge education called CE (Continuing Education) Seminars. CE seminars can be presented at your hospital facility or at your local AORN Chapter meeting.


The use of medical devices is an increasingly important element of a healthcare professional's role.

We understand the impact of new medical-device technology on nursing practice and patient outcomes.

Medical device technology will continue to evolve and challenge nurses at the point of care.
