I am a new grad nurse that was fortunate to start in the MICU. I'm still in that stage of anxiety, dread as a new nurse each day I work but am blessed to have this experience. I want to work for at least a yr in the ICU maybe more. I was interested into going into the OR. How might I be able to do that? Do I need to take a class? Go into a periop program if those even exist anymore? I was thinking about asking whoever in my hospital if I could shadow an OR nurse for day. I've only had one clinical experience from nursing school in the OR and enjoyed it. So what are the steps or classes i need to do? Is there a certification I need to obtain?
