Operating room nursing is a specialized field in which nurses provide quality care to patients before, during and after surgery. This is a meaningful and rewarding career. The staff in the OR not only get to work with and help people, they really get to focus on one patient at a time, prepping them, keeping them safe during surgery, and helping them as they come around for anesthesia.
Operating Room Nurse Day is celebrated on November 14 each year in the United States of America. Operating Room Nurse Day first started in the year 1979 in appreciation of the nurses who work in the operating theater. The Association of periOperative Registered Nurses started the tradition of celebrating National Operating Room Nurse Day to raise awareness of operating room nurses and their contributions.
