No problem, Argo and THANK YOU so much for the advice. I'm definitely going in there with an open mind, humbled and ready to learn. I don't think they expect me to be on my own until 6 months, and from what I know already of the open heart team, they work very well together. I think most OR's have to, to survive. The teamwork I observed every time I did a rotation there was one of the reasons I loved it so much. I am BIG on teamwork.
I will have to work hard on #3, because I have ADD and tend to get tunnel vision (even with medication) without meaning it. So I will make an extra effort to pay attention to everything around me. That piece of advice seemed meant for me, lol.
I don't think I will learn how to scrub, but I will need to learn the instruments. I'm so ready to get started, but I'm focusing on NCLEX for now, which I'm taking in less than 2 weeks...then I can focus on my new awesome career
Thank you again for taking the time to write...it was greatly appreciated,
