OR nurse questions
Hi my name is Liz and I have applied and been accepted to work as an operating room nurse, hoping to volunteer a year from now in May 2017! I have many questions about the OR and what being an OR nurse is like aboard the ship. I have been an OR nurse for a year and a half. I think I read somewhere that Mercy Ships has 6 operating rooms, is that correct? What is the call schedule like for OR nurses? How often are you on call and for how many consecutive hours? What is the most common procedure performed in the OR? And last for now, what is your favorite part about being an OR nurse for Mercy Ships?
