- 0Jul 1 by ruralgirl08I've been in the OR 3 yrs. I like what I do for the most part. The only thing I dislike is the hour commute. I have looked at closer hospitals, but they never seem to have external postings. They are strongly unionized, and positions are awarded on seniority/experience. I am debating whether to take anything to get my foot in the door, or continue to wait it out in hopes that one day something will open up. Anyone been in this dilemma, how'd it work out?
