Perioperative Nurse Program

Expand your career options through the Perioperative Fellowship Program at Methodist Healthcare—the only program of its kind in Memphis.

Our program is designed for graduate and registered nurses and will train you to function as a novice nurse in the perioperative setting. You'll develop the surgical skills you need to work in the operating room as a circulator.

The program is open to all Methodist Healthcare nurses and teaches:

  • Processes in the surgery suite
  • Specialty equipment for surgery
  • Basic sterile techniques, suture, wound assessment, surgical positioning, surgical prep, and draping
  • Minimum competence of the surgical scrub

You’ll receive six months of full-time didactic and clinical training. Classes start in January and June of each year, and our class size is limited.
