Perioperative specilaty course

  1. I am currently applying for a OR job with a perioprative specialty course for 10 weeks. I am wondering if a perioperative course incluse preoperative, intraoperative and post operative. I mean if I will be able to work in holding, surrgery and PACU.
    Thanks

    This really depends on your facility. The 8 month PON course at the facility I work for, is designed for you to be in the OR circulating only. Pre-op will get you only if they have a definite need for you. Post op is left for the ACLS certified nurses (OR nurses here have "no need" to be ACLS certified!!)
