I really wanna be an OR nurse. Unfortunately, my first job wasn't in the OR. I'm now trying to look for another job and would like to try OR but most of the job postings require 2 years experience. I don't qualify for new grad programs anymore. How do you transition from floor nursing to OR?
ArtClassRN, it seems like you are reading my question wrong. I was asking how I can transition to OR from floor nursing, not how stressful OR is compared to floor nursing. Thank you for your input though.
I welcome everyone's answers but I'm hoping to get more objective responses that actually answer my question.
I appreciate everyone's suggestions or advice. Thank you.
P.S. I've decided OR is what I wanna do even when I was still in nursing school. It's not because I want to get away from floor nursing.
