I started OR nursing as a new grad in December '12. I was torn between the OR and L&D, but was only given the opportunity to interview for OR, even though both units were hiring (it was because I did some periop rotations during school). I am grateful I have the job and took it for that reason, but I am not positive the OR is really my passion. I like what I do most days, but I can't help thinking maybe L&D might be a better fit for me. Here are some things I miss from clinicals and wish I got to do more of...1) med admin 2) assessment/critical thinking 3) IV's 4) patient care. I am on OR orientation until July and I'm not sure how long to wait to try to pursue L&D in my hospital, which I have heard may be easier now that I am an employee and will bring OR experience with me. Can anyone give me an honest idea of what to expect and whether or not a move from OR to L&D is wise. Thanks so much!
