    Cataract surgery is pretty cool I worked at an ambulatory eye surgery center in medical records/ scheduling before nursing school and got see many of them always fascinated me.

I find OR fascinating from a learning perspective but I love the interaction with pts u get on the floor. I'd love to see a transplant!
