Operating Room Nursing

Where Operating Room Nurses or Perioperative Nursing come to network with each other and share their experiences with other OR Nurses. Nurses in this field provide care and support to patients before, during, and after surgery. These nurses are responsible for maintaining a sterile environment in the operating room, monitoring the patient during surgery, and coordinating care throughout the process. They are also responsible for making sure the OR team provides the patient with the best care possible.
