Question by Haley: question about college and nursing?
Ok so i want to be a surgical nurse ( the nurse that passes the surgical instruments during an operation) do i have to get a degree as being a registered nurse or do i just jump in college getting a degree in surgical nursing?

u have to become a registered nurse, and then you will need to do a specialist course and then assuming there is an opening in the surgical ward, will u be able to assist. But thats the same for any specialist nursing like mid-wifery. Anyway the career ur looking at is called a theate nurse. Either way u still have to do the RN first
