I moved from the ER to the OR a little over a year ago. I took the periop 101 class. I do still work int the ER per diem. I have discovered in my one year, actually in the first few weeks, that OR nurses are a different kind of nurses. It seems to be a little world unto itself. The OR as a whole seems to be more dramatic. I am not saying I do not like it or the staff, by any means, I have a great respect for some of the nurses. I became a charge nurse within this year so I see a little different view also. Anyone else have this experience in the OR?
