I have been a med-surg nurse for two years now. I feel comfortable on the med-surg floor (though it does get very crazy at times). I am interested in an OR position where they are willing to train. What difficulties did you guys face when you transitioned to the OR? I am very nervous about making such a change as med-surg and OR are different animals. Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for your post . I also feel that a prayer is all we can say sometimes. Praying brings a world of comfort and keeps me moving during overwhelming situations such as a code or rapidly deteriorating patients. We are mere humans and we can only do what we know. Its up to the God above us to carry out His plans.
I once woke my sister up and asked her why she did not call me when my patient was having a seizure.
You have a nightmare that the foley which was supposed to be removed from the patient yesterday is still in.
You took the words right out of my mouth. I was about to post the same question as you. I have also been going through the same problems as you. I started working nights in March and things have not been going well. I have also lost weight and in a very unhealthy way. I pretty much go to sleep only at 4 in the morning and food habits have been terrible. My family is very unhappy with it and this has created a lot of friction. Not to mention I'm also a full time student in the BSN program. I ask myself if my career is destroying my personal life and I sometimes wonder if I have lost myself. Its a little consolation that I'm not the only one with these problems.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I hope I haven't hijacked your thread.
