Good evening to all, curious about this specialty. I have an interview this week and this is the unit for the job posting. I had previously worked on an ortho/neuro floor in the past and wonder if it might be the very same or quite different. You know they don't divulge any information what so ever when you are contacted for an interview.. and don't ask them any questions either! Just go.
Psych patients, brain tumors, shunts, lots of back surgeries, lots of chronic back pain pts, parkinsons, TBI, compulsive pts, confused pts, HA, terminal brain cancers, epilepsy,seizures, anti-seizure medications, high fall risk pts, bed alarms, restraints, neuro checks, spinal cord assessments, paralysis, trach care, feeding tubes, lots,lots lots more! Very demanding job but can be rewarding. I have worked on a neuro floor for a year now, can't wait until I have worked two years to get my CNRN
