Manitoba Operating Room Nurses Association (MORNA)
Welcome to our Official Website
Who is MORNA?
The Association is provincially organized, and is based in Winnipeg.
Board of Directors
The affairs of MORNA are managed by a Board of Directors which is composed of the Executive Officers, Representatives from all Winnipeg Operating Rooms, Chairpersons of Standing or Ad Hoc Committees, and Associate Chapter President(s).
There are a minimum of five (5) general meetings, held from September to June. Each meeting has a business section, as well as an educational session. The Annual General Meeting, which includes the Election of Officers, is held each year within May or June.

Thank you for visiting the Manitoba Operating Room Nurses Association website.
Our group consists of talented and dedicated perioperative nurses throughout the province from all surgical specialties. As well as supporting its members in providing safe and efficient care, we work to ensure that our group remains current with new practices and technologies so that the very best care is offered to our patients.
MORNA continues with our membership with the Operating Room Nurses Association of Canada (ORNAC). This membership process allows all MORNA members access too many opportunities offered through ORNAC including webinars, discounts to the ORNAC conference and a "voice" at ORNAC's Annual General Meeting held each spring. I believe you’ll be impressed by what MORNA/ORNAC has achieved so far and am confident about its potential to accomplish great things in the future.
MORNA strongly supports education through monthly meetings which consist of a business meeting followed by a nutritional break and then our education session. Through Telehealth we are able to include many rural sites in our monthly meetings and are working on increasing this membership throughout the coming year. Our meetings will continue this year at the PanAm Clinic in the Conference Room on the main floor. These meetings will give participants a platform to exchange ideas, discover novel opportunities, reacquaint with colleagues, meet new friends, and broaden your knowledge.
We also host our annual Spring Workshop which not only provides the opportunity for nurses to enhance their perioperative knowledge but also the opportunity for nurses to network within the province. This year, the workshop will be held in Winnipeg at the Hilton on March 4, 2017. For further information regarding the workshop, please contact Jacquie Radtke at firstname.lastname@example.org. We do hope you are able to join us.
Finally, I would like to thank our members for the support and active engagement to our association. Your role in realizing our vision and being part of a team that is committed to the very best in patient care, safety, education and research is deeply valued.
With best regards,
