In this specialty area, perioperative practical nurses care for patients from all age groups and work in a variety of surgical subspecialties. Perioperative nurses are an integral part of the interprofessional team, caring for patients during their most vulnerable time, and advocating for them in the operating room when they are unable to do so for themselves. Perioperative practical nurses must be able to work well under pressure, multitask, and have strong teamwork skills. The operating room is a high-tech environment that is constantly evolving, which is a perfect fit for nurses who are interested in learning and willing to adapt to change. This program offers online theory courses, simulation and real-world clinical experience, to provide the Registered Practical Nurse with the necessary knowledge and skills to competently care for patients undergoing surgery in the scrub role while working efficiently and effectively in the perioperative environment.
