New graduate nurses in the operating room will evolve into quality perioperative nursing professionals through a combination of quality classes, the Association of Perioperative Registered Nurses (AORN) core curriculum, simulation, one-on-one skills validation and hands-on application with expert clinical mentors, educators and professional development guides.
Perioperative nursing provides a diversity of cases and the opportunity to work as a team member while keeping focus on one patient at a time. The circulator role provides opportunities to observe hospital approved holidays with call staff coverage, maintain day shift schedules and utilize uniforms provided by the hospital.
The perioperative services cohort is offered at these Prisma Health facilities.
