Surgical Services RN Training Program

OR Training Nurse

The Operating Room at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center provides a comprehensive training program for both new graduates and experienced RNs.

The training program is based on AORN standards, recommended practices and guidelines. AORN is the national Association of periOperative Registered Nurses. The program consists of didactic and clinical experiences. Through engaging content, nurses learn not just what to do, but how to do it and why.

Upon completion of the program, the RN serves in both the circulator and scrub roles. 

The program helps nurses: 

  • Build competence to practice safely in the OR
  • Learn to understand and critically assess patient safety
  • Keep up in the fast-paced surgical environment
  • Gain independence to take on perioperative responsibilities

The next program will begin July 18, 2016. Apply now
