Diversity Statement

The American Society of Ophthalmic Registered Nurses (ASORN) has always strived to reflect and represent all nurses pursuing excellence in ophthalmic nursing practice, therefore, we reflect and represent our diverse patient populations and allow for the highest level of cultural humility. Our society is reinforced by our members inclusive of race, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, age, disability, and life experiences. Through these values and beliefs, ASORN fosters and respects the diverse ideas, opinions, and thoughts that will ensure our community continues to excel, innovate, and encourage learning and leadership.

Additionally, ASORN recognizes the significance of the contributions that a diverse community of nurses can make to the field of ophthalmology.
