What is the classification of NP?

  1. 0
    Hi all, I am still a student master of nursing (General) in Hong Kong, and I am considering to study NP program in UK or US after my several years career in future.
    I would like to understand more about NP. I may plan to become an OR nurse, yet I wonder is there any NP for OR nurse? And is OR/OT job considered as speciality of nursing in UK/US ?

    At this time there is no OR NP; however some doctors have their NPs and PAs assist in the OR with them along with other duties such as rounding and doing the clinic. OR RNs do have many opportunities esp travelers who can command the rate of NPs and get free housing as well 45-55/hr as a traveler with renewable 13 wk contracts....hope this helps....

    You can look into being an RNFA (Registered Nurse First Assistant) or CRNA (Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist)

    I'm a Surgical NP for a general and minimally invasive surgeon. I round on patients in the hospital, place lines, and assist in surgery. I completed an ACNP program, because AORN recommended the acute care track for NPs with a role in the OR. I am also a CNOR, and I still work as an OR nurse on weekends for extra money. I'm currently completing my RNFA now, which is necessary for nurses in Texas to bill as an assistant in surgery.
