Pre-operative nursing is one of the many different areas of nursing you can slide into with an associate or bachelor degree in nursing. Many hospitals hire newly graduated nurses for pre-op, post-op, or OR (operating room) positions.

You will need to become a Registered Nurse, or RN, first. To do that, you must attend either a community college or a university and follow the course guide for the RN program. A counselor at either school should be able to tell you if there are classes recommended specifically for pre-op nurses.


Answer by  elb (1105)

To be a pre-op nurse, you need to be an RN with at least a two-year degree and some experience. You need to take classes on perioperative nursing, available at many hospitals. Working nurses take such classes to be ready when a pre-op nursing job opens up.
