Who do you like the most in the OR?


Specializes in OR-Gyn/Uro.

Hi there, I have been an OR nurse for 6 months working at a major teaching hospital. This is a fun topic. Who's your fav in the OR? Besides my nursing co-workers/scrubs, it is definitely the residence/fellow. We cry together, we laugh together, and we complain about the staff together. They give us heads up about the case if there are any changes or special requests. They respect us. They even remember and celebrate Nurses Week. When they get yelled at, I feel like I get yelled at. Overall, our staff surgeons are wonderful too, but not as nice/fun as our residences. We all go celebrate when they graduate from their residencies. It's weird, I feel so proud and really want them to succeed as surgeons.
