I have a question about ortho RN's. What kind of education outside of the AAS or BSN do you need to become an orthopedic nurse?
I'm currently finishing up my BS in kinesiology and need to decide if I want to enter the professional phase of my athletic training program or go ortho RN. The length of the RN program and the professional phase of my ATEP are the same, so I won't lose anything by switching.
I'm heavily leaning to ortho RN, but need some insite as to what other educational qualifications I need in addition to the AAS or BSN in nursing.
