Welcome to the OR!!!! OK before I say anything else just let me say "DON'T GIVE UP!!!" and "Never let the surgeon see you cry".
I'm sure they will ask you all of the standard stuff unless you are in one of those huge hospitals and they start asking you those questions like "Tell me about a problem you helped solve at work amongst you and your co-workers" I hate those!! Or "What do you think your best qualtiy is". They will ask you if you are bothered by taking call. If you really want to work OR say no you don't mind because it is a necessary evil (and a good way to make tons of money).
The OR is great but it is TONS of information to process. OK you're about to graduate so you can relate to this.....It's kinda like you having to have all of the basic knowledge of anatomy, physiology, & disease processes, and clinical manifestations to choose a NANDA. Well here you have to have all of the supplies, sutures, instruments, knowledge of surgeries, and doctor preferences to be efficient. You will have to learn a lot of information to be an OR nurse but if you just got out of school you will be great. But don't give up!!! You can learn it. I have seen so many give up at first because they were timid and didn't like the fast pace stress enviornment.
My advice to you is to get a small spiral bound notebook and TAKE NOTES! We have preference cards in every OR that tell you all the stuff you need for each surgery but it is always good to have every surgery written down and special little things that you can do to make it awesome without being asked. Then once you get used to it you won't need the notes you will just know when to get the lateral positioner for some ortho cases, or when to put extra sutures in your pockets, or what extra instruments you could possibly need during the case. We had a new nurse we were trying to train and it took her almost a year to be in a room totally by herself because she refused to write things down and was not assertive enough to break into the docs conversation about golf to ask if she should order more blood or not or to ask important questions. And my hospital is small compared to some of the bigger ones so we don't do a lot of trauma or CV. Just the main stuff. Remebering every surgery and surgeon preference is like trying to remember 50 recipies. But once you get it, it is a BLAST!!!!! I love it!!! Good luck and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. It is not that bad and the good thing is that after all of the nurses start to accept and love you then you will all be like family. It always amazes me how close the nurses, docs, and scrubs
are in the OR's. I guess they are like your second family since many times you spend more time confined with them than with your own family. Good luck girl!!!
