We can all agree that nurses work hard enough as it is! So why do some nurses take on extra work to make the shift towards becoming a theatre nurse? I’m going to list three reasons why nurses in different fields take on extra training and education to get into working in surgery as a theatre nurse. Although the salary isn’t to be ignored, these are some of the most appealing non financial reasons why different types of nurses take steps towards becoming a theatre nurse:
Providing Extremely Important Care
If you are a nurse, it goes without saying you care about helping people. All nurses do great work but as a theatre nurse, you get to help some of the patients that require medical care the most. In the operating room, you are providing urgent aid. Most would agree that saving lives is the most rewarding part of nursing and as a theatre nurse you are certainly at the forefront of live saving care.
