Where can theatre nursing take you?

Nursing is one of the most employable degrees to have, so having a specialty such as theatre nursing under your belt will only set you up for a bright career pathway.

As a theatre nurse, you will already be experienced when it comes to working in the surgery room, so an obvious pathway for future development is becoming a surgical care practitioner. Practitioners provide care across wards, theatres and in clinics, and are an invaluable part of the surgery team.

Besides this, you may also choose to pursue managerial roles within hospitals, where you will be taking greater responsibility for patients and operations working within a particular department. Or, you may decide that your interests lie more in education and research. There are certain clinical academic careers that will allow you to produce and publish research funded findings on clinical treatments.
