What does a CVOR nurse do?

As part of the cardiovascular surgical services team, CVOR nurses provide direct patient care in the CVOR surgical suite. They take on a variety of responsibilities that require an abundant array of skills, including caring for cardiovascular patients before, during, and after surgical procedures. CVOR nurses coordinate the entire operating room regarding sterility and the availability of functioning equipment and appropriate supplies for each procedure. They also assist surgeons during operations, which may include operating cardiopulmonary bypass machines and monitoring vital signs. Other common duties include:

  • Overseeing sterilization procedures

  • Administering prescribed medications

  • Applying dressings

  • Providing after-care instructions and educating patients and family

  • Maintaining records of surgical outcomes

  • Completing patient charting

Where do CVOR nurses work?

Most CVOR nurses work in hospital operating rooms and specialize in cardiovascular surgeries. They may also work in dedicated cardiovascular surgery centers.

What skills make a good CVOR nurse?

Good CVOR nurses have excellent teamwork and communication skills because working in the cardiovascular OR requires a highly cohesive team effort. CVOR nurses have advanced knowledge of all types of cardiac operative procedures, which helps hone their lifesaving skills. They have enhanced technical skills that allow them to operate and troubleshoot complex machinery. CVOR nurses possess strong organizational skills to effectively coordinate care across the CVOR and excellent attention to detail to ensure quality monitoring and patient safety. Other desirable skills that top the list include verbal and written communications, time management, assessment, advocacy, critical thinking, and interpersonal skills.

How to become a CVOR Travel Nurse?

To become a CVOR travel nurse, individuals must have an active RN license. This requires an associate or a bachelor’s degree in nursing from an accredited nursing program, passing the NCLEX-RN and completing state licensing requirements. Certification in Basic Life Support is required and many facilities prefer, and sometimes require, Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support and Pediatric Advanced Life Support certifications.

Due to required surgical assisting skills, many employers prefer a BSN degree or higher and Certified Perioperative Nurse certification, which can be obtained from the Competency & Credentialing Institute and is the only accredited certification for perioperative RNs. Transitioning to the CVOR requires hands-on experience in cardiovascular treatment, critical care, and/or operating room procedures with most travel CVOR nursing positions requiring one to two of recent RN experience in a cardiovascular operating room environment.
