What is Post Basic in Perioperative Nursing?

The Perioperative Nursing program is designed to provide knowledge and skills for Registered Nurses who are interested in pursuing a career in the operation theatre. Perioperative 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.
