Perioperative nursing care requires unique specialty knowledge, skills, and abilities. National initiatives in nursing education and health care support integrating perioperative nursing content into curricular offerings in nursing schools and health care institutions. We provide an overview of the initiatives affecting nursing education, followed by a case study example and a guide to assist educators with incorporating perioperative case studies into their education plans. These resources may enhance the integration of perioperative nursing concepts in undergraduate curricula, internships, and continuing education offerings. The purpose of this article is to provide resources for nurse educators to systematically create case studies and to encourage increased exposure to perioperative concepts and competencies in a myriad of educational environments.
