I've been lurking around this site for a couple years. This GI section is really sloooooow......
Where are you guys? Tell me about yourselves! Please! I'm so bored right now.
Me, I've been doing GI about 4 yrs. now. Prior to that I was a med/surg nurse. I've also worked in a family practice office and as a home health nurse (briefly).
I worked in the GI lab at a hospital for a year or so. Since then I've been working in an outpatient surgery center, which is heavenly! We only do upper/lower endoscopies. No bronchs/ERCP's or anything else. 99% of our procedures are diagnostic (vs. therapeutic) so I rarely see GI bleeds, food boluses, etc. anymore. Sometimes I actually miss that.....but....I DON'T miss taking call and working Saturdays! :chuckle
Anybody else alive out there???
