The Peri-Operative Nursing programme is designed to provide knowledge and skills for Registered Nurses who are interested in pursuing a career in the operation theatre. Peri-Operative Nurses work closely with the Surgeon, surgical patients, family members and other health care professionals to help plan, implement and evaluate surgical treatments.
Nurses will be able to perform a pre-assessment and risk management for surgical patients, assist in the administration of anesthesia, perform the role in scrubbing and circulating during surgical intervention to provide immediate post-operative care.
There are several routes for theatre nurses to further their careers including in management, education, research and pursuing their further studies to become a surgical care practitioner.
