Got a job on Ortho Floor
- 0Oct 16, '03 by Ortho_RNI have worked on my Ortho floor for 1 1/2yrs as a PCA, and I have enjoyed it.
This past Saturday my Unit Manager pulled me into her office and asked me would I like a job on this floor when I graduate... (which is December 12th)
So I told her of course She offered me a FT Night position.. I am so excited..
Now all I have to do is past my final and survive ICU and Pediatrics clinicals
- 0Dec 11, '03 by KimRN03I have also been a PCA on an Ortho floor for about six months and interned there this past summer. I was offered a Day/Evening position when I graduate starting December 30. I am excited, but terrified! It helps that I know the staff and know the floor already. I am a little concerned that the staff will assume I know certain things.
Congrats on your position! I think ortho is a great place to start!
- 0Dec 14, '03 by nursALSHi..... I have been an ortho/neuro RN for 31 years. I love ortho patients because generally they are not sick. They are usually healthy patients who come in for their elective surgeries, get well, and go home. I like to see patients get well and go home. We do get our share of the elderly who fall and fracture their hips, but most of the patients are stable.
