The program begins with participation in selected Experienced Nurse Onboarding (ENO) offerings. Following ENO, participants combine Association of peri-Operative Registered Nurses (AORN) approved online didactic content with clinical skills labs and hands-on experiences in the operating room.

After successful completion of the didactic training, the nurse is paired with a mentor in both the scrub and circulating roles for a designated period of time. Following this, the nurse spends time in each surgical service offered at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center before selecting a service in which to specialize for a concentrated block of time.
