OR Nursing
OR nursing is great--1 patient at a time! It's very stressful, but the pro's outweigh the cons. Normally a better schedule than the rest of the hospital because the OR isn't fully staffed 24/7. Each procedure has a team (RN's, scrubs, anesthesia, assistants) so you're never totally on your own. It does take several months to a year to become proficiant because it's so different from every other type of nursing. Laughing

Shocked I was an or nurse rnfa for 17 years. I learned alot saw alot and hurt alot. Didn't get to sit allot. Never got breaks. Hospital was level one trauma center 24/7 on call all the time. Took over my life and ruined my back. Can't say that I miss it. I don't think I ever liked it but, I think for the most part it was management I didn't like. "They would sit and do crossword puzzles at the charge board take long lunches etc. while you were back in the room for 4 hours and no break in site. Which means no (potty, drink eat).
