Re: is there a nurse helping the surgeon operate? what kind of nurse lpn? rn?

I know on my OR rotation as a student, the RN did not help the surgeon operate. They help the surgical tech do the counts and document the procedure. I was watching operations and was not really paying attention to what the nurse was doing but I know they did not help perform the surgery at the hospital I was at.
