Also called Recovery Room Nurses, Perianesthesia Nurses care for patients as they regain consciousness from anesthesia, after surgery. While most patients wake up calmly, these nurses are prepared to handle patients who react aversely, waking up confused, in pain or experiencing breathing problems. As a Perianesthesia Nurse, you’ll also consult with patients before their surgery, and give them recovery tips for when they go home.
