Hi! I have almost three years of med-surg experience, and I recently went from med-surg to the OR. At my facility, which is a large, level one trauma hospital, nurses both scrub and circulate. Orientation is 9 months, so I am still in orientation. I personally emailed the OR manager and asked if I could shadow to see if it would be something that I would like. I highly recommend doing that because it was nothing like I got in nursing school. As for pros and cons, it depends on the person. I see only pros. I love the OR!!! I love the schedule, love the people, my manager and educators are amazing! Only con for me is that I didn't start earlier in my career. So, if you are interested and there are spots open, find out who the manager is. See if you can observe a day in the OR. For me, I observed and that same day, I applied for the job. Good luck to you!!
