Program Start Date: April 2, 2018
The Perioperative Operating Room Nurse Residency was built upon an educational course designed by the Association of Perioperative Registered Nurses (AORN). Residents rotate through all of the orthopedic subspecialties learning both scrub and circulating roles. At the end of the six-month experience, Residents who successfully complete the program are offered positions in the Main operating room. The program includes a mix of classroom, lab and clinical experiences, working side by side with preceptors who are experts in the operating room nursing practice. The HSS Professional Development Center features a mock OR and simulated patient care setting, including "Sim Man," to help assist new graduate nurses in their transition to the world of "real time" nursing.
As an integral member of our Magnet Nursing team, your focus will be - the delivery of the world's best patient care! Working in an evidence-based Nursing environment that commands excellence every day, you will learn to provide comprehensive nursing care to our patients in the Operating Room setting.

In addition, capacity to collaborate with the OR team to promote the highest standards of safety is an essential competency to fulfill the mission of HSS.
