I will be graduating from nursing school
in May and would like to work in the OR as either a scrub nurse or a circulating nurse. I'm thinking about going into a surgical tech program after I graduate because it will teach me the knowledge and skills required to work in an OR. I know some hospitals train nurses to work in the OR but I'm thinking that getting certified will give me more options and make me a more attractive candidate. Is this a good idea or is it not necessary? Thanks.
