    OR Nurse Orientation

    Dear OR nurses, I have 4 years of experience in peds ED and am making the jump to adult OR in August. I don’t know much about the hospital but it is one of the only trauma centers in the area, and is also a county and teaching hospital. I was told in my interview that my orientation would be 3 months, but from what I have been reading most OR orientations are about 6 months. Will 3 months of orientation be enough?? From what I understand, there is a lot to learn in the OR and I’m getting nervous now! Thank you!
  2. I am a nursing student in Arizona, and will be graduating with my BSN in April. I am 20 years old, and have been pretty interested in joining the military as a nurse, more specifically the Air Force. Does anyone have any thoughts on whether it is better to join as a new graduate, or with some experience first? I was thinking about doing a new graduate program at a hospital in Phoenix and then talking to a recruiter after about a year. I know it is probably based on personal preference, but any information or pros and cons would be much appreciated!
