Internship programs/finding first OR position

  1. I am very interested in OR nursing but am finding that internships are really hard to find. I know the easiest way in to a program would be as an internal applicant at my current hospital, however I am feeling the need to get out of my current town/hospital and the thought of signing a contract to work for them for another few years makes me cringe. I would love to re-locate to the pacific northwest but am worried an out of state application wont be given the same consideration. Any advice for me? How did everyone else get their start in the OR?

    I did an internal transfer. Do you know if your current hospital has an OR internship program?
