Ortho Nursing

  1. Hi-
    I am a second semester nsg student in an RN program and was offered a position at a hospital working as a tech on the Ortho unit and just wondered if anyone could give me any advice on this specialty, the good/bad and any other things you might be able to tell me. Thanks!!!!

    Hi- good luck with your job, ortho is a great place to be

    My suggestions are:
    -get competent in lots of lifting techniques. There is a lot of lifting on otho.

    -show confidence when you are going to lift someone. The patients are often in a lot of pain (and tons more when they are moved). If you don't look like you know what you are doing they will be very anxious!

    Have fun!
