  1. Thank you all for your response. I really appreciate your insight and enjoyed reading your tips 🙂
  2. Thank you for your replies :) I just had my full week of clinical and so far it has been great! Most people are very helpful and kind. I am seeing amazing teamwork and I am actually so happy to be in the OR. I know there will be many more hardships but I think I will enjoy OR nursing!
  3. Hello all, I have been a registered nurse for 6 years, mostly working in post surgical units. I was interested in the OR and landed a sponsorship. The theory part is finished and I will start clinial next week. Im a little anxious to say the least... I am told that there will be yelling, 'everyone in the OR is crazy', you will suffer, etc. Can I hear anything positive? Can anyone give me tips on making it in the OR? My anxiety is through the roof. I am preparing for the worst. I can be a little timid at first and I don't have an extrovert personality.
  4. Hello all, I am applying to masters programs in Ontario. For anyone that has applied, do college professors count as academic references? I have been out of school for 6 years and I am currently completing the perioperative program. Thanks D
