This is kind of a silly question. I am still in nursing school but exploring my career options. One area that interests me is the OR. I have plans over my winter break to observe in the OR if possible to get a better idea of what nurses do there.
Every so often I browse the open positions at the local hospital I will be working for (I'm in a stipend program with them so I owe them two years of employment anyway) just to see what's available. I currently see 2 openings in the OR. But the job description says "must have at least 1 year OR experience."
So... if it takes OR experience to get a job in the OR, how do you actually get OR experience? This seems kind of like a catch 22.
Any clarification would be appreciated.
