Hi everyone,

I'm technically considered an "old new grad nurse". I completed a new graduate OR nurse residency program a year ago, but unfortunately got injured (outside of work) and had to get surgery. I moved back to my home state of New york to recover. After getting through the hassle of transferring my license (from Delaware), I applied for jobs, and have an interview for an OR position at a relatively small hospital. I'm a little nervous since I have been out for so long.

You dont use a single thing from nursing school in the OR. I feel like anyone can do this job just need basic medical knowledge and a regard for safety. It's extremely overwhelming at first because it's not like what you learned in nursing school. You will be fine if you are worrying about things you learned in school.
