Muriel, OR Nurse
I work in a smaller community-based hospital (Ridge Meadows Hospital). Working at a smaller site allows you to really get to know the people you work with. There is real camaraderie between all levels of staffing, which allows us to work well with each other and we genuinely have each other’s backs. We are like one big working family.

I live in the community that I work. Working in a smaller community-based hospital makes me feel that I am actually contributing to [help] the people where I live. 

If you like critical thinking, learning new skills in an ever-changing surgical nursing field and enjoy having a varied work day, every day, with a set schedule of shifts and being on-call, then OR nursing may be the perfect career for you.”
