As a new RN I am still trying to find my niche, but I have been interested in OR nursing since school clinicals. Did any of you start in the OR right away or did you work elsewhere first? How long is the orientation to OR? It is a whole new kettle of fish for someone coming from a med/surge floor so any input is greatly appreciated.
Also, do any of you work with RNFA's? If so, how do they fit into the OR team?
