Abstract: It was a privilege to attend this year’s joint Operating Room Nurses Association of Canada (ORNAC) and International Federation of Perioperative Nurses (IFPN) Conference hosted in Ottawa, Canada on 21–25 April 2013 to present on my research findings via my paper: “Perioperative Nurses: Finding Meaning from their Experiences in Multi-Organ Procurement Surgery”. After presenting my preliminary PhD research findings at the previous ORNAC Conference, I vowed to return and present my final PhD findings at a future ORNAC Conference. I submitted my abstract; however, little did I know that I would be expecting my fourth child and racing to complete my PhD before the baby’s arrival. When I received notification my paper had been accepted this caused some dilemmas as to how I was going to get there, leave a small baby and fulfil my obligation to present my PhD findings. The solution was a quick visit, several interconnecting flights to get to the conference, stay for a couple of days, present my paper and return home as quickly as possible.
