What is an Operating Room Nurse?

Many operating room nurses work in hospital surgical departments, but they also work in outpatient surgery centers. Besides general surgery, operating room nurses may also choose subspecialties within the field, such as cardiovascular surgery or neurosurgery.

Operating room nurses, also called surgical nurses or perioperative nurses, are RNs who specialize in the operating room. Perioperative nurses help plan, administer, and evaluate the treatment of patients scheduled for various surgical procedures. They work closely with patients and their family members, as well as the surgical staff and other health care professionals.
