Well get ready to work...
I started out as a Aide on an Ortho floor... We mainly get Total Hip Replacements and Total Knee surgeries, but you can get just about anything... Rotator Cuff repair, broken arms, legs, ankles.. The only things we didn't get were back related things, they went to a neuro floor.
I think Ortho is a hard floor.. You have patients that lots of times are total care patients. If your person has a broken hip and is in Bucks Traction they can't get up to the bathroom, so they rely on you. What shift will you be working?? To me that makes a big difference.. Day shift has it rough with all the baths, etc.
Its a good floor.. I work on it now as a RN... Good Luck
