Hí everyone, I'm a new grad from London Ontario (Canada) and want to take an Operating Room course in either Australia or New Zealand. The only problem is that being an international student I'm not aware of the different reputations of the schools. Could anyone please suggest the names of different schools that are known for producing good OR nurses. Thanks a bunch!

which offers a perioperative course in conjunction with la trobe university
For serious perioperative experience you can't beat the alfred, it is an adrenaline junkies paradise.
the following link is to the victorian government's nursing website,
