“As an OR Nurse, also known as a circulator, I work with different people in the OR. Besides our Ancillary staff, I work with Surgical Attendings and Anesthesia Attendings, as well as CRNAs and AAs.” – Eghe Ehiman, OR Nurse
“As an Anesthesia Tech, you basically function as the provider’s other set of hands. You make sure all the equipment is ready to go and all the machines are running, as well as prep IV sites.” – Abigail Perkins, Anesthesia Tech
