You will supervise room setup including getting the high-tech equipment ready for the surgeon to use during the procedure. At times you will scrub in, actively assisting in the surgery itself. At other times you will run the room as a circulating nurse making sure that everything is prepared for the particular procedure being performed.
After the surgery you will supervise transition of the patient to the post-operative care departments
