Hi, Claudia. The first step is nursing school
and you'll get exposure to various areas of nursing. Med/surg, peds, maternity etc. Most schools
don't really have an OR rotation anymore, which is sad. You may get the oppourtunity to observe here and there. Once you are a nursing student, I would try to get a student nurse internship in the OR-this way, you get exposure to the OR and you become a familiar face to the staff, docs, and administration. They may even offer you a job when you are done with school. I would say try to get a job as a surg tech first, but many places don't train on the job anymore, and you'd have to go to school to learn to be one. My tech school was not cheap. As a matter of fact, My RN schooling was 4 times cheaper than my tech degree. So I would definitely recommend going right for the RN, especially since you're young. Good Luck!
