I'm new here and this is my first post. I am very interested in surgery and I'm trying to decide which career path I should take. I am considering going to school and becomming certified as a Surgical Tech first then take the Surgical RN route. Ultimately I would want to go to a PA school that focuses on surgery. Here are my questions:
1) Does an OR nurse work only
in the OR?
2) How does the role of the Scrub Tech and the OR Nurse differ?
3) Have any of you taken similar career paths or would you recommend something different?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
