Welcome Chicago Chapter 1401 members,

I hope everyone is enjoying these summer months.  The Chicago Chapter appreciates the support you provide, and I wanted to welcome the new members on board, and welcome back the members who continue to support this Chapter. 

First, I want to thank you, the Chapter members for the opportunity to have me serve you as the AORN Chicago Chapter 1401 President for 2018-2019 year. I have followed Chapter 1401 close to almost two decades, and have served as a Delegate member many times during AORN Congress. My experience in the surgical setting has provided many opportunities for career growth. In the surgical setting, I have worked as a staff nurse in the GI Lab and the main Operating Room, Neuro/Spine OR Specialty Coordinator, Charge Nurse, RN First Assistant, outpatient Surgical Clinic Nurse, and as a Reusable Medical Equipment (RME) Educator and Coordinator in the Sterile Processing Service. I have a great passion for working in the surgical environment. AORN has provided the motivation and the guidance for me to truly love the perioperative world. I am very proud to represent AORN and Chicago Chapter 1401.

Odina Juhasz
