Hello all, I am considering a career change to infusion nursing from ER. I figured since in ER we do a lot of infusions and deal with PICC lines and such, that the transition shouldn't be that difficult, but I could be wrong.
Can someone please give me some insight into what a typical day as an infusion nurse is like? Also what are the hours/pay scale/stress level? What is typically the acuity level of the patients?
I have been a ER nurse for 4 years, and also did travel nursing as an ER nurse and I am ready for something a little less stressful that still allows me to keep my skills (becuase I do enjoy working with IV's) I'm hoping this would be a good fit for me. Any advice is greatly appreciated, Thanks!
