OR job must haves...

  1. Hello:

    I am a 3rd student nurse preparing to do a one-day job shadow at a large teaching hospital. Along with learning the daily tasks of the OR RN, what questions would be important to ask the nurses in terms of deciding if this facility is one I would eventually like to work at? Are there specific reasons each of you chose the facility where you currently work? Basically, what are the OR job "must-haves" that you couldn't live without.

    Thanks a lot for your comments...

    1. Do you have enough bodies for teaching?
    2. Will I learn to scrub as well as circulate? I was lied to at two facilities, where they promised I would learn to scrub, then after I started they said they didn't have the resources.
