Need advice in regard to working in surgery

  1. Hey,

    I am an international nurse who have been offered a job in surgery in Canada, and I have fear as I have never worked in surgery before apart from clinical rotation in nursing school (which was not in Canada). My past experience have been in obs, gyn from home and medical and oncology in Canada.
    I need some advice from those nurses who work in surgery, how is it working in surgery? do u think I will be able to learn and implement.
    I do understand some surgery patients have medical problems, so i might be able use my medical experience but it's the nursing care for surgery patients which i am concerned about, and also not been aware of surgical procedures.
    I am wondering is it worth taking the risk in order to learn and this will give me some experience in surgery too....

    Your advice will be highly appreciated and will give me some direction.
