Hi, I was wondering if it is possible to go straight into working in an OR after qualifying as an RN.
I'm just about to start my second year of study and have always fancied working in the OR.
With graduate nurse programs can you choose which area to go into or are you generally shown different areas of nursing throughout the year?
I'm hoping to do a perioperative placement for my practicum in my final year. Would this be considered enough experience to go straight into theatre or do they prefer more experienced nurses?
