On behalf of the Organizing Committees and the NORNA Board of Directors, it gives us great pleasure to welcome you to the 5th Nordic Operating Room Nurses Congress. The Congress will be held in the city of Stockholm, Sweden, from November 29 to November 30, 2018.

The theme of the congress is Come Together - Building Bridges in Perioperative Nursing.The aim of the conference is to share initiatives in perioperative nurses caring for the perioperative patient.This promises to be another exciting educational, networking, social and cultural experience for one and all. An important part of our program is the medical technology industry exhibition, where you will have the opportunity to get information and news, to test products and ask questions. Our hope is that at least 300 - 400 OR Nurses will attend the congress.

NORNA Congress
This is a 2-day congress for Nordic OR nurses, hopefully also with participants from other European countries and the rest of the world.

Waterfront Congress Centre also has a hotel section in which we have reserved rooms until September 28, 2018.

Stockholm
“Venice of the North”. Our beautiful capital city of Stockholm is made up of islands interlinked by bridges. A large part of our capital consists of parks and green areas.

Stockholm is a well-visited capital that offers rich culture and entertainment. The Old City, Skansen and the City Hall where the Nobel Prize Banquet is held are popular tourist destinations.
Three of UNESCO's World Heritage Sites are located in the Stockholm area: Drottningholm Palace, Birka and The Woodland Cemetery (Skogskyrkogården).
