New grad with previous surgical tech experience

  1. 0 I am graduating with my ADN in December. I was a certified surgical tech for 7 years, mainly neuro, but haven't worked in the OR for over 10 years. I'm just wondering if my surgical tech experience will work in my favor when I apply for jobs in the OR as a new grad. I think I would also like the cath lab, but would need to get experience before I'd be considered for that.

    As a director/manager through the years I would def hire someone with that experience.
