Circulator scrub training


I'm currently working as a circulator, but I would like to train to scrub. When I was initially hired as a new-to-the-OR nurse, my director promised that after 2 years as a circulator I could train to scrub. Well, 2 years has come and gone, and my director has continued to say no, citing staffing problems. Sigh. So, I'm wondering if anyone knows of any circulator-to-scrub training programs out there?
