Thank you for saying that. It burns me every time that I hear someone say that OR nursing is a technician's job, a monkey could do it, or you don't use your nursing skills.
I would love to see a floor nurse, an ED nurse, or an ICU nurse try to properly set around a room, set up a procedure, position a patient, trouble shoot down equipment, appease an angry surgeon, provide ideas to circumvent unanticipated events, identify a kocher, know the risks of machinery, understand a pneumoperitoneum, and the risks associated to such a necessary thing, etc, etc, etc.
I would want an RN - no - I would want an educated and experienced PERIOPERATIVE RN caring for my loved one in the OR. Certainly not a monkey.
