I am currently working full-time in an OR. I've been there for about a year and a half now. I'm miserable and would like to leave the OR and move on to a new department.
I am a fairly new nurse. I graduated in May 2016 and started working in the OR in August of 2016. The OR, at least in my case, has offered me very little opportunities to do "nursing". I haven't even started an IV since nursing school
. I feel like what little knowledge or skills I may have had are all gone....pretty much feel like a new grad at this point.
I don't know what areas would be a good match for someone like me and I'm looking for suggestions.
There are a lot of ER and Telemetry jobs available in my area, but I worry I won't be able to keep up. Is med-surg my only option? Or would an ER or Telemetry job be ok?
Any advice or or suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance.
