I am going to be graduating from a local nursing program
in two weeks, taking my NCLEX shortly after, and taking a position in the OR where I currently work. I wanted to get some opinions about a new grad nurse going straight into the OR. I have been working in the OR for the last six years as a Certified Surgical Technologist that I got right out of High school. I feel like the Operating Room is my home and I don't want to leave. They are holding a position for me, for when I complete my RN degree. I am just worried that I should get other experience before taking this job, but in the end want to be in the Operating Room. Would I be making a mistake in staying in the OR as a new grad, or should I take a possible job offer on the cardiopulmonary unit that I am currently doing my precepting on and having great feedback with the manager? I would like to do the best thing for my future and I am just unsure. Thanks for the feed back in advance.
