TESTIMONIALS


… I thought the journal questions were good and liked how they tie into being in rooms instead of just “book” questions.

I also thought the competencies were very well done and were a lot more in-depth then I was expecting. It was a pleasant surprise. It’s also easy to follow…”

I enjoyed this course very much. With this being my first position in the Operating Room this course definitely helped me learn the basics of aseptic techniques and the roles of all the personnel. I also feel like it provided me with the knowledge and skills to safely care for patients. I would absolutely recommend this course for anyone new to the OR.

Meagan P

I loved my instructor Kimberly, she was an instrumental help to my learning. I feel like this course would be very beneficial to someone who has a little more surgical knowledge prior to starting this course.

Janet R

I felt like the program was very well rounded and helped me feel prepared and knowledgeable in the Operating Room.

Sonny S

This course was very beneficial to my learning in the OR as a new graduate nurse. Although overwhelming to study while learning in the OR, this course helped me bridge the gaps between what I saw, heard, and read. I feel more confident in my practices and abilities to care for patients undergoing various procedures.
