As a new nursing student, with a look of awe I would look at experienced nurses and think "Wow....I can't wait until I have been working as long as they have, to know what they know." Well, now I am there and I am the same person... Read More

    Forgive me but 'eye surgery center' doesn't mean LASIK and the like, not a vision correction center? Or does it? If it doesn't, what attracted you to eye surgery?

    Hi.
    No, it is not a LASIK or refractive surgery center. We do have one but it is in another location and nurses don't need to work there.
    I work at an ambulatory surgery center. We have 12 eye surgeons. The main surgeries done there are: cataracts, Retina surgery, surgery on the cornea or cornea transplants, glaucoma surgery, and plastic surgery (mainly on the eyelids).

    For more info about nurses in ophthalmology (and why I love it.....I truly do) please see my latest article:

    Love that you are so geniune about your passion of nursing. I hope to have the same passion when I become a nurse. I have worked in healthcare (different positions from activitiy assistant to pharmacy technician) for the last 8 years and love the few nurses I work with that still have the "fire" of caring.

    nursefrancis, aren't you AKA: nursefantastic, nursefrenetic, nursefrantic, nursefunny, nursefairness, nurseforlorn,and nursefrankenstein?

    Seriously, now: Good Article! It's a Pleasant Experience to read a Bit about your History; your Story.

    As Evidenced, your Article paints a Postive Picture for those Fresh in the Field, and allows Seasoned Nurses to Recall Their Own History.

    Thanks for sharing, nurse..where's my bike?
