What is the title of the nurse that calls people at home before procedures to verify information and go over pre op instructions. I know it's an RN but what is the title. Thank you in advance.

That's going to vary based on facility. In those I've worked in, they've all had the title "RN" but it was the department that varied:

  • Pre-anesthesia clinic
  • Surgical and procedural home
  • Pre-admission testing
