Hi everyone. I am so excited. Our school provides us with a 3 day OR experience. Tomorrow I am going to be shadowing a Circulating Nurse during a Colostomy takedown. Not sure what Friday holds for us yet. We saw quite a few various operations during our tour today and orientation to the unit. Working in the OR looks so facinating but quite demanding at the same time. I am one of those that is hooked on the Discovery Channel when they have operations on. (Husband comes in the room and turns right around and walks out when it is on.)
I am not quite sure what area I am going to work in after I graduate in another year but am leaning towards OR.
What areas to you recommend working in before applying for an OR position? Or any other credentials needed.
