Traumatology Courses for Operating Room Nurses

Traumatology Courses for Operating Room Nurses

In Nursing School, pupils learn a lot of things but which are general knowledge.  When a new nurse arrives to an operating room, it is necessary that some colleagues teach her how to work.

In Traumatology and Orthopaedics OR, it is necessary know a lot of different techniques, a lot of instruments, different devices and the traumatology patients need a lot of care. Each year there are new and more advanced techniques and it is necessary to update knowledge.

I am the Coordinator of Instrumentation Courses of the Spanish Traumatology and Orthopaedic Nursing Association from 2007. Every year, I organize two courses for traumatology operating room nurses. One of them is a basic course for nurses that need to learn new things or secure the knowledge that they have. The Update Course is directed to nurses who have been working in the traumatology operating room  for several years (minimum of two years).

There are very few courses for operating room nurses in Spain.  Our Association wants to help our colleagues with these theoretical and practical courses. Teachers are all nurses with a lot of experience in traumatology operating room.
