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?

    I've read a few of your posts on AllNurses. I'm looking at leaving my postpartum unit job and trying out an ambulatory eye surgery center. Can you message me because I'd like to get more info. Thanks!
