O.R residency

Specialties Operating Room


Hello everyone,

I've been a LPN for 15 years, but I am back in school to finish my R.N as it has always been my dream to work in the O.R!

I live in the Chicago burbs and I am trying to find a hospital(s) that have O.R nurse residency programs with no luck. Does anyone know what hospitals do, or where I can search???

thank you so very much!


Specializes in ICU, Trauma, CCT,Emergency, Flight, OR Nursing.

Hi Jen,

Oftentimes the big academic hospitals have nurse residencies / New Grad programs so I would recommend starting to look there. If you are not already a member /student member of AORN, consider joining as there is a career center on the website where such nursing vacancies are posted. Also consider posting on the facebook group page The OR Life as it has a huge following and people are eager to give info and "the in" on open positions and residencies there.

Best of luck.

Hello Ricki,

Thank you so very much for all of this awesome information! I am going to join now : )
