I wanted to have some feedback on a hot topic that is going to start to be addressed at the hospital that I work at. I am currently a Certified Surgical Technologist for sometime now and I am going to be taking a position in the OR as a Registered Nurse as a new grad. In the past, the CSTs that have transitioned to the RN role have started out with new grad pay, but have started training nurses coming into the OR shortly after because they knew the OR better than most. My question is in other facilities, are/should CSTs get experience pay when they transition into the RN role? The reason why this is a hot topic is because the RNs that have scrubbing experience are being asked to scrub cases if short on CSTs. Thanks for your opinions and responses in advance.
