Hello everybody! I'm new here. I would like to return to work after taking 5 years off to raise my kids. I have 11 years floor experience and am ready for a new challenge. In doing some research (networking, talking to other nurses), I've decided that OR nursing is perfect for me. I'm very excited to get started; I've read 12 pages so far on this board and have looked into OR internships where I live. Fortunately, there are 3 different hospital systems that all offer internships. I'm waiting to hear back from one of the directors. My question is, how flexible are these internships? Are they Mon-Fri eight hours day or can you tailor them somewhat? Does anyone know? The ones I've looked at are 6 months long and are both didactic and clinical. The reason I'm asking is 1, my kids are in middle and high school and need shuttling around to various activities after school, and 2, we'll be doing some extended traveling this next year (brother getting married, overseas travel etc). If anyone can shed some light I'd be much obliged.
