Thank you for considering a career with Froedtert Health!

Location: US:WI:Milwaukee at our Froedtert Hospital facility.

FTE: 0.875

Shift: 1st working 3/12s per week 0630-1900 on the Vascular/Transplant team. On-call obligations.

Froedtert Health sees our nurses as professionals and we are invested in seeing them deepen their skills by moving from novice to expert in particular procedures as well as broadening their skills by learning new procedures or services. At Froedtert we perform over 17 thousand surgeries annually. Many are very complex and require the highest level of expertise from all tem members.

The Operating Room Nurse (OR RN) is an indispensable member of the surgical team. The OR RN performs:

� Nursing activies during the intraoperative phase of the patient's surgery.

� Provides continuity of care throughout the perioperative period.

� Uses scientific and behavioral practices with the eventual goal of meeting the individual needs of the patient who is undergoing surgical intervention.

� Accompanies the patient from Procedure Arrival and Recovery to the OR.

� Answers last minute questions patient or their family members may have.

� Helps to position and prepare the patient on the table.

� Assists in helping set up the room for surgery.

� Often accompanies patient back to the Post-Anesthesia Care Unit (PCAU) and reports relevant information to the PACU nurse.

As an OR RN you can perform one of two vital roles during surgery: 1. Circulate outside the sterile field a. Obtaining and opening up supplies b. Positioning and calibrating equipment c. Sending specimens to the laboratory d. Hanging medications e. Recording intraoperative events and data f. Ensuring that the surgeon and others working at the surgicla field have what they need 2. Scrub as a member of the team a. Hand instruments to the surgeon as necessary b. Help to manipulate the patient and the wound to enable the surgeon to work effectively c. Receive instruments and supplies from the circulator.

Nurses must be capable of circulating, or learn to circulate, but are encouraged to learn to scrub as well.

At Froedtert Hospital we have many general nurses, but most nurses eventually choose, or are selected, for a service pod (i.e. specialization). This is an important aspect of their development as nurses.

Pods include:

� Neurosurgery/Ear/Nose/Throat/Oral

� Orthopedics/Plastic Surgery

� Gynecology/Urology

� General/Endo/Oncology

� Transplant/Vascular

� Cardiac/Thoracic

� Robotic

� General/Endo/Oncology

Froedtert Health follows the Standard and Recommended Practices for Perioperative Nursing by the AORN-the Association of PeriOperative Registered Nurses. We provide many opportunities for you to grow the depth and breadth of your expertise as an OR RN.
