    Noob. plz help me.

    Hello all you wonderful OR / theatre nurses out there accross the world. I'm about to begin my new grad year in NT, Australia and I have been allocated theatre for my first rotation. I feel totally unprepared and nieve. I have so much to learn... including the basic role / job description for theatre nurses. If any of you have any advice, even if it is what new grads (like me) do that really irritates you... ANYTHING you have to say that can help me learn or help to guide me through this terrifying experience would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
  2. I've just moved from NSW to the NT for grad year and after only being here for a week, my contract start date has been brought forward and I'm told my first rotation is in theatre. I have spent a total of one day on prac in theatre, in a very small hospital, and with about as much related study content through uni, I'm a little paniced. Being more of the primary health care kinda nurse, and having problems with my health, theatre was the one ward i really didnt want to go to. I'm open to new experiences and I do believe everything happens for a reason. It's just going to be such a steep learning curve. I'm scared for my patients! I'll have no idea what I'm doing in there. If there is any theatre nurses out there, I'd love to hear a bit about what you do. Or other new grads with similar fears. Any advice is always welcome!
