 Out of curiosity, how much have you all received for new OR nurse orientation?

For where I am, it varies based on which location a new hire is assigned to. Some locations are a single specialty and receive 12 weeks of orientation. Those that cover multiple specialties receive a 22 week orientation. Current staffing model is that RNs only circulate.

For where I am in a small, rural facility, we are preceptored for our perioperative program (approx 12 weeks) and then set free on two ORs. We scrub, circulate, and work PACU in rotation. It's nice because you get to switch it up.
