OR Nurse Training Program

Considered a highly specialized area of nursing, Operating Room (OR) nurses are consistently in high demand. Rutland Regional has developed an intensely structured OR Nurse Training program, the only one in the state, that trains and graduates nurses to be OR-ready within nine months. The OR Training Program officially opened in June 2020 in a retrofitted classroom on West Street. This classroom simulates an actual OR and allows intensive training for multiple students at once. The OR Training Program, designed and run by the OR Nurse Educator, features instructors that include Rutland Regional surgeons and OR staff who represent a variety of specialties and introduce the nuances of particular procedures.

Since its inception, the OR Nurse Training Program has enrolled nine OR nurses from three separate cohorts. New this year is a collaboration with Vermont Technical College (VTC) in which Rutland Regional provides instruction on perioperative nursing and supports VTC students with a clinical rotation at the hospital.
