Operating Room Q

  1. Hi guys,

    Please help me with some infos, please.
    I want to work as an OR RN and I know that for that I will need the course. I was wandering how difficult it is to get into this course because I was told that there is a waiting list..It means that many people want to work there..

    Where can I find such courses in Vancouver, B.C. area?

    Thanks a lot.

    Hi folks!

    Just follow-up questions about OR in Vancouver especially VGH.

    How many nurses usually work in one theatre? How many LPNs or ORtechs? Is it stressful to work there? What's the whole environment like?

    Thanks you so much for the reply if anybody.

    Check out

    www.bcit.ca or .com


    You should check with your local colleges/university and see what they have to offer. You may end up doing a course on line and will need to do practicum hours later.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi Guys,

    I need help too. I am looking into working in the Operating Room. I have no experience but interested in scrubbing. Does anyone know the difference between surg techs, certified surg techs, scrub techs, and cvor technologists? Any would help.
