"Most of the time I feel like a tiny speck in a huge world where no one speaks my language (ophthalmology language). Here I have camaraderie.
ASORN membership provides my continuing education resources and keeps me 'up' on all the new 'stuff'. You speak my language. But mostly ASORN provides a voice for this 'tiny speck'. I believe there is power in numbers. Too often ophthalmology is discounted - until we are needed. Compared to other healthcare specialties our numbers are small.
Often patients see CRNO on my badge and ask what it means. With pride and confidence I assure them that it means their eye nurse is educated, devoted, and by maintaining certification I keep current on issues relevant to their care. That would not be possible without ASORN."

While in school, I've been impressed with the need for evidence-based nursing and getting information from 'those who know best' ...........
Before coming to the VA, I was the manager of SPD at my hospital and would certainly have appreciated having a copy of the ASORN's manual on taking care of eye instruments. After learning about TASS I decided to re-write our policy. ..........
Thank you so much for all you do, it's so important. I happily received all your encouragement and help today, it's been a great boost to my spirit.
