I'm currently taking my prerequisites for Nursing. I was wondering if a new grad can get hired in the OR? Is there any difference between OR and Perioperative?
Also, do all hospitals use RNFAs? is that something that you can go to school for? Or would it be better to be a Nurse Practitioner?
Sorry for all the questions! I'm just really interested in OR Nursing!
Yes, CA does offer the course.
When you are on Online Directory page, choose CA, click ALL on program type and Search. There are 7 University/CC that offer Perioperative Nursing Program. I am in CA and taking the course.
My class costs $375 + $80ish for the book.
A membership doesn't come with my class. I don't know if Periop 101 online class gives a membership too. But I am a AORN member. I applied as a student. It's only $20.
