I'm so excited! I'm a fairly recent RN graduate, and was advised by many not to go straight to the OR....get a year or 2 of med/surg experience. I've been doing just that for about 7 months in a small community hospital, but I have been so unhappy with understaffing and mandatory overtime, and was rethinking my decision about becoming an RN. Cosmetic sales was starting to look really good. (I was an LPN for quite of few years prior, in outpatient type settings) I went ahead and applied for an OR position in a large teaching hospital down the road and got it! I know I'm in for alot of hard work, but I feel this is what I was meant to do, and it was the whole reason for going back to school. I would love some words of wisdom, advice, encouragement, or strength. Thanks!
