Hello all,

I am a fairly new grad RPN working on a Neurosurgery floor. I am in my second week at Mohawk college taking the RPN Operating Room Certificate program. I am looking for more input into the OR nurse (whether it be Scrub nurse or Circulating nurse) role. If any of you (RPN or RN) can give me some personal feelings, advice, hints about the role. greatly. I have already done my research which lead me to enroll into the program. However, it would be nice to get some inside tips into the role and/or some personal accounts from those who have been down the path I am about to take.

Any input (negative or positive) would be appreciated and be of great value to me.
