- Sep 6, '12 by ♑ Capricorn ♑Would plastic/cosmetic surgery fall under this too? I know some plastic surgeons (in my area at least) have their own day surgery centers. Also, is it common for new grads to get hired at these day surgery places or are they better off starting in a hospital OR? I ask because I can eventually picture myself working at a place like this in the future, after nursing school.
- Sep 6, '12 by HollywoodDivaMost plastic surgery cases that don't require a hospital stay are done at surgery centers. As an OR nurse you need to start in the hospital as a new grad and learn the foundation of OR nursing.
