I graduated a year ago, and I would like to work in the operating room. I am struggling to find a certificate program that teaches perioperative nursing in my state. Can you suggest where I can turn for help? I am willing to travel to other states in New England if necessary.
Dear Donna replies:
The best source of information for OR training is the Association of periOperative Registered Nurses (www.aorn.org). Your state or local chapter of AORN will know what’s happening in your area, and the national office also can help.
