    I work in LTC. I wanted to move from where I was. Shortly after I was hired, I had an offer for the OR in Nfld, but I wanted to move west. Then a few weeks ago, a recruiter contacted me for OR positions in Northern ON, but I don't want to move back to ON yet. I think in another year or so, I'll enroll in the periop course because ultimately that's where I want to be.

    Thank you all for the replies. I am grateful for the encouragement and support from you all. Dishes, I contacted the ORNAO and hope I hear from them. I always wanted to know what happens in nursing conferences.
    Dela RN and BOXRLUVR, My question is for you. The peri-op program that you both taken, Did that guarantee you a job in the OR afterwards? And what are the positive aspects of working in the OR? Why do you love it?

    I have always been fascinated by human anatomy. Working with cadavers and body organs in my anatomy lab gave me this giddy feeling i can't explain and my interest strengthened when I observed a four-hour surgery in the OR. it was love after that.

    Oh and I start plugging away at that much needed med-surg experience next week.

    Hi there,

    I am a recent RPN new grad and when looking for work, I noticed the positions hiring for an OR nurse required a special certificate to practice in this area. So it looks like you will need to enroll at a school. I have just started the OR program at Mohawk college. Humber College, and Centennial have OR programs as well.
