This is my first time posting on allnurses but I regularly read threads to help find answer to my questions.
At the moment, I work at the Gastroenterology clinic out of VGH and specifically I work with the Hepatologists to start and follow people on Hep C treatment. Also I am involved with clinical trials that deal with HBV, HCV, HCC, NASH, PBC, and PSC. I love my position as the Hep C nurse in the clinic but sitting at computers all day and talking to patient's over the phone majority of the time is starting to wane on me.
I've recently looked into trying to get my RN ticket but because I'm 10+years out of High School the hoops I would have to jump through are ridiculous. I would be looking at 6-7 years of full time post secondary school (I need pre-reqs to get into the pre-reqs that then would get me into the pre-req course that would get me into the 2 year course of the BsN program).
I've always been good with blood and gore and so I've been looking online and found out that LPNS can work in the OR. I was hoping someone could help me and guide me in the direction I need to start searching for LPNs to work as scrub nurses within BC.
Anything would help, thank you and all you LPNs rock! Way to be awesome!

An OR Tech is an LPN with post graduate education. They are qualified to scrub or circulate.
NUrse Moore, do you realize that this a discussion concerning Canadian LPNs?
