I have worked in the OR for a yr and a half. I loved surgery so much that I went straight into the OR after graduating nursing school
. I still love surgery, but the call and mandatory late days are getting to be a struggle w/ my family situation and working on my BSN. My husband travels quite a bit for work and I have a young child. We live far from our family, so not much of a support network to help us out. I want to change my status from full time to PRN....but I am nervous to approach my manager. Our OR is hurting for nurses and people seem to be trickling out the door. I am afraid of letting my coworkers down b/c I know if I leave, it's one less person to cover the mandatory late days and call.
