Theatre Nurse

See below to view Theatre Nurse jobs in the UK Aesthetic Industry.

A Theatre Nurse works primarily within operating theatres alongside anaesthetic/recovery areas. The role can be demanding and is vital during every stage of the perioperative journey. Generally, Theatre Nurses can specialise in particular areas. These can include anaesthetics, scrub and post-anaesthetics. In a day surgery environment, rotation through these specialties is also common.

The Theatre Nurse ensures that the patient is informed about the benefits and risks, and that they are in optimal health for surgery. They also provide equipment and drug preparation as well as patient care during the Anaesthetic and Recovery phases.

During the procedure, they will work with the surgeon, providing instruments and materials as required, and anticipate their requirements. Often, the Theatre Nurse will act as the link between the surgical team and other parts of the theatre and hospital.

In order to work as a Theatre Nurse, you must hold a degree in pre-registration nursing, followed by registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC), as well as specialist training relevant to the particular role.

After general qualification there are post-basic educational courses available which consolidate the specialist skills required for the perioperative environment. Courses are at Diploma of Higher Education (DipHE), Degree and Masters level and can be taken on a part-time basis.
