1. I am a nursing student and I did my 1st surgical rotation today. In was watching a cardiac bypass surgery. In the OR there was a Nurse who actually performed the surgical procedure on the pts leg to take a piece of his vein to use in the bypass. She said she was aRN with special training in this procedure and she gets paid a 6 figure income! What is she?

    Thank You! I was really impressed with the fact that a Nurse could do that! It gave me a new prospective on OR nursing!
