Ill start off with im a new nurse.
Ive never really planned on going into OR nursing before because of how difficult it is to get a position in. But recently was told about a potential opportunity to go into the OR which is always something that I was very interested in. (I actually have previous surgical experience, and they told me they were interested in me so I think my chances are quite good)
One of my concerns though, was I dont exactly have the best genetics and dont see myself as being physically capable of handling a physically demanding nursing job for more than maybe 10 years if im lucky.
One of my original plans was to do the normal bedside thing as long as I could physically handle it, and once my body can no longer keep up, transition towards administrative duties/management/nurse manager etc then take it from there.
But if I end up spending most of my career as an OR nurse, im not really sure where I could go from there. Any more knowledgeable minds able to help ?
Also I havent gone back for my MSN but I plan to, although im not certain in what area
