Come meet and chat with members from our Recruitment, Clinical Education, and OR leadership teams and get the opportunity to tour the Operating Room (OR) at Lions Gate Hospital.

The role of a Perioperative Nurse

OR Nurses support, appreciate, and respect one another and the collaborative team. Clinically and in general, great OR nurses become experts in various surgeries and pathologies, and as such are able to provide the best care while also excelling in communication, critical thinking, decision making, and prioritization. The ability to work in area that is specialized, and amongst a collective team, OR nurses have the ability to be a part of a unique segment of the patient surgical experience and really do make a difference.

OR Nurses at Lions Gate Hospital are highly valuable members of the perioperative team. Our multidisciplinary team provides the best care for our patients within a fast-paced, technical and unique working environment. They provide exceptional nursing care for patients who are undergoing surgery - from elective outpatient procedures to high acuity and complex emergencies!

When you join the OR team, you will experience a culture of teamwork, professionalism and mutual respect. 

Regional Perioperative Education Program (RPEP)

RPEP is an innovative program that utilizes multiple learning modalities such as online learning, simulation strategy and clinical practicum. The theoretical component is based upon AORN's Periop 101 online modules. There is a strong emphasis on the clinical portion in various specialties within the operating room training sites. Funding will consist of 100% of wages, tuition and books during the training program.
