Forming the main backbone of the surgical team, the surgical nurses are trained to be experts in pre and post- operative care procedures. They work in dynamic and challenging environments with key roles in life saving surgical procedures and surrounding care. Sometimes even called as Surgical or an Operating Room Nurse, they will be responsible for educating patients on procedures prior to surgery, adjusting treatment plans, and teaching patients about post-operative self-care. Even doctors rely on these dedicated professionals who touch countless lives, and who bring about positive improvements in the health and welfare of patients and their families. Though it may sound and can be stressful at times, it is ultimately rewarding.
