I have recently made the tradition from OR nursing to floor nursing. I did it to further my knowledge in pharm, assessment, and pt education before I graduate NP school. The change I made, and that you speak of, is pretty unheard of as usually floor nursing is where careers begin and the OR is one people don't tend to leave. I also went right into the OR after graduating (I had OR experience already). So far it has been a challenging change as the floor I now work cares for patients with neuro and renal needs. It was difficult to find a floor position when I was looking. My resume helped a lot as I have continued in my education and earned certain certifications, however during my interview for the floor I now work, they questioned my nursing skills and seemed to have doubt. Luckily I know people that were influential in helping me with my goal to get the position. I certainly enjoyed the OR and still pick up there from time to time. I consider it a home and hope you strive to do the best you can wherever it is you land. Good luck.
