New Grad peri-op RN

  1. Can anyone provide advice/tips on what to expect as a Peri-Op plastic Surgery RN. This will be in a private practice with 3 internal OR's. I am a recent grad. What are some common medications, skills, that I should study/ practice? Has anyone here started their career in OR?

    Are you getting an orientation? Usually you start with the AORN periop 101 online course, followed by a precepted orientation.
