    New Grad Operating Room Tips?

    Thank you for answering all my questions on here!! You're awesome. I'll check out the blog because I'm so excited for this specialty. I've been watching Youtube videos all day now about the OR, but there isn't much information out there (at least from when I'm trying to search) By incidents, do you mean adverse incidents that happened in the OR by mistake?

    Shoes to buy for the OR

    I figured mesh would be a bad idea! Lots of nurses have told me to do Hoka, but those tend to be mesh lined I tried Danskos in store they felt odd to me. I think the sizing is very difficult too. Did the sports shoe store professionally fit you? I didn't know they had these options available at stores

    Dallas New Grad

    Hi, I'm graduating in Dallas, but it is a bit competitive here. Residency usually do not want individuals with more than 1 year experience as a nurse and you may no qualify for them

    Shoes to buy for the OR

    Hi! Graduating soon and I’m planning on buying nursing shoes as a gift to myself when I pass my NCLEX. I’m 100% willing to splurge, but what do you guys recommend? I’ll be doing an OR residency if that matters at all

    Nursing Student Question

    Hi Cinthia! I stumbled upon your post and was surprised to read that you’re from TWU. I’m actually an S2 graduating this cohort in July. I landed a job in the OR residency here in Dallas. Let me know if you have any questions! Feel free to reach out to me. I definitely did not have big OR experiences, but made it in!

    New Grad Operating Room Tips?

    Hi everyone! I’m going to be working in the OR as a new graduate this Summer. What are your best tips/advice for me? What do I need to learn now rather than later?

    Parkland Nurse Residency Summer 2021

    I heard back in March after my interview. However, I was told from my friend that so long as you don't get a rejection letter, you're still under consideration. Maybe email the recruiter and that might help?
