It takes the same amount of schooling as any other RN- a diploma, ADN or BSN. Usually there is a much longer orietation.

It depends on where you are. In Ontario you need your RN (BScN), and then there's an additional Operating Room Nursing certificate that you need. Different programs are different lengths depending on whether you do it part time or full time. Generally it's a year part time to do it.
