In such a place, what is the difference between the clinic nurse and perioperative nurse specifically? What does it take for a new grad to possibly find a job in an outpatient surgical center like this? Is OR experience necessary for most positions? I'll be starting nursing school soon, so I don't really know--can we elect to do rotations in the OR during school to help with this introduction? Basically, knowing how to break into this field would be some great help!
