    I just wanted to give an update on how the first two weeks of my job have been so far! some days are slightly overwhelming with new info and learning while others are amazing!

    I hope everyone else is having a good start so far and for those who responded on here who do not find the OR as their place in nursing, I wish you the best with finding a passion in ur career good luck!

    I'm glad u are enjoying ur time in the OR. It has been 3 weeks, I've assisted with circulating and today I was able to scrub in and pass instruments (I was so nervous) I also had the chance to gown and glove the docs and learn the correct way to pass sutures. There's so much to learn, thank goodness this is a long orientation.
