The development of the data collection tool for this study was an attempt to consistently capture objective data specific to the organizational context.
After several seminars, since a new and exclusive discipline was created to address the CS content: CSN, which preceded the ORN discipline, and the class requirement for both was having completed the Medical Surgical Nursing discipline.
The reduction of class hours due to changes in the curriculum has required the introduction of new learning opportunities in the practical field in the Clinical Clerkship Discipline, as Interventional Radiology Units.
This timeline was developed using information from the files of the EEUSP Undergraduate Program Office, and the reports of the faculty of the OR discipline, who followed part of its history.
By not offering this content to undergraduates, in the United States, there was a reduction in the number of nurses interested in working in the OR, and, as a result, the demand for OR enhancement courses also diminished.
Some schools offer a very superficial content in the surgical nursing discipline and the practical part consists of visiting OR units. When the observer was unclear about the purpose of the communication or the target person, the information was clarified with the charge nurse.
The charge nurse is integrally involved in insuring that staff, patients, and equipment come together seamlessly to move patients through the surgical process. Occasionally, the charge nurse voluntarily disclosed the information on the communication.
