Hey JJK, I saw that you work in the surgical unit. I am a semester away from starting the nursing program at my college, it is an Associates of Applied Science in Nursing degree, and that is the field I want to enter once I get my RN license. I was wondering if you could give me some information on joining the surgical team. Do I need a BSN, or ER/ICU experience? Or do fresh RNs get hired?Do you have Your CNOR? I would like to get certified eventually, but experience is required, which goes back to my question above.Any other advise would greatly appreciated! I am very excited about my carrier choice.
