Expand Your Nursing Career

Renown's Surgical University offers career advancement opportunities.

For current RNs interested in joining a career in surgery, Renown’s Surgical University (or “Surg-U”) program is an ideal fit for nurses who want to learn more about the fundamentals of a perioperative nurse role.

This 6-9 month program offers future surgery nurses the chance to learn perioperative nurse principles while circulating through surgical departments in the Operating Room at Renown South Meadows Medical Center and Roseview Same Day Surgery and the Trauma Operating Room at Renown Regional Medical Center.

Trainees will learn the concept of the sterile field, surgical asepsis, patient safety, the foundations of surgery, foundations of surgical anesthesia and the responsibilities to the surgical team.

If you have experience as a nurse, EMT/paramedic, certified nursing assistant, vet tech, emergency room tech, SPD tech, orderly or anything similar, you are welcome to apply! An active Nevada RN license is required for admission.

  • All prospective candidates must have the ability to apply for and maintain a Nevada RN license to qualify.
  • Upcoming Cohorts: January 2024
