Transcript of Surgical Nurses
The outlook for surgical nurses is very good. Surgical nurses are in high demand and this job only requires a BA, or a 4-year degree.
Surgical nurses have to be friendly and upbeat because they interact with people who may be very stressed or scared as they will be receiving a potentially life-changing surgery. Surgical nurses must be patient, kind, compassionate, steady in their works and actions and must demonstrate self-control. They should enjoy interacting with people under great stress, and if you don't then surgical nursing may not be the job for you.
Surgical nurses work in shifts, so one nurse may work an average "9 to 5" job, but another nurse may be working from 8 pm to 4 am, so this career isn't always a typical day job.
The day-to-day responsibilities will vary depending on the patients and the operation being performed, but overall most responsibilities will be fairly standard.
Surgical nurses perform pre-operation, in-surgery and post- operational procedures like administering medications or performing blood tests, getting a patient ready for the operation and caring for them during and after the surgery.

The beginning salary for a surgical nurse is around $63,000 but with overtime hours and holiday pay and bonuses or promotions surgical nurses may be receiving upwards of $70,000 annually.
