I'm beginning to plan my personal statement, but I still have some thoughts about what degree I would like to apply for. Both degrees are at the same university. My plan was to apply for operating department practice because I'm very interested in surgery and I like the fact that I'm able to work with a range of different age groups. However, I've thought about a degree in adult nursing then becoming a theatre nurse.

Which would you recommend?

It all depends on where you see your career heading in the future. Do you want to stay working in peri op care or do you want the ability to be able to move into other areas? While ODP is diversifying a little bit and working outside their traditional areas, the main bulk of ODPs still work in peri op care. Nursing may give you more options if you want to move away from theatres.
