Hello All, I am currently an RN with ADN and working in LTC/Post acute care. I am very unhappy doing this type of nursing. Although I enjoy the residents and love giving care, this type of nursing really scares me as far as the charting and the overwhelming amount of work! I have decided to enter into the perioperative nursing program at my alma mater which has a very good reputation. I am very excited to start the program which begins in January 2014 and lasts for one semester with a clinical rotation at one of our local hospitals. I just want some advice as to what to expect and if this program is worth the money (3,000 +). I really want to specialize in perioperative nursing and this is the only way I can see going in order to realize my goal.
Thank you so much for any advice you can offer!
