Where I live, the local college offers a periop nursing course for RN's or RN students in their last semester. In the periop course, the student is required to spend 160 clinical hours in the OR. Where I work, the only way they will take someone w/o any OR experience is if they have taken the periop course and have completed their clinical hours. This may be an avenue for you to take. Check your local colleges and see if they have anything like this available. This is how I got into the OR and we just hired an experienced med-surg charge RN who completed her 160 hrs in two months and they offered her a job before she had even completed her clinical hours. Best of luck!
