Roles in the OR
- 0Nov 24, '00 by womsyI am an RN working in anaesthetics in the UK and I am considering a move to the US.
I find the roles outlined in OR's confusing could someone please explain them to me?
Also do RN's work in anaesthetics, assisting anesthesiologists, etc. What are their roles?

- 0Jun 12, '01 by cindybethI worked in Kansas City w/ CRNAs,(certified nurse anesthetists) and they pretty much did all the anesthesia for surgery except open hearts. Now I work in Denver, not a CRNA in sight except the labor deck. It may depend on where you go. Also, CRNAs pretty much require a master's degree, I don't know what your education level is. Good luck
