OR Nursing.. What is it like?

Hi I am a new grad and looking for some ideas of what is like working in the OR? I have really enjoyed clinical time in OR but I am curious to hear from those who have worked there and what is it like? It is a stressful environment? And is it a good place/ department for a brand new nurse to start working in. 


Any information would be appreciated! :)

I would recommend starting here- lots of OR nurses have contributed and you can see the variety
