Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be an orthopedic nurse? Nurses who specialize in orthopedics can work on the floor taking care of patients recovering from orthopedic surgeries or they can be the nurses in the operating room while patients undergo orthopedic surgery.

In my career as a nurse, I have loved being an orthopedic surgical nurse. It is usually exciting to take care of orthopedic injuries or to assist with a total joint replacement. There is an intense feeling of satisfaction to seeing broken bones fixed before the patient leaves the OR.

Check out my article I wrote for FreshRN.com to read all about what it’s like to be an orthopedic nurse!
