just wanted to say hi as I'm propably gonna spend some time in this board after finding out I'm gonna start working in orthopedics soon! I'm an internationally educated nurse (Scandinavian) and transitioned to the US a few months ago to do nursing. I have been an RN for 5,5 years now, with one year in ortho. I will start working soon in a large, nationally- and internationally-known teaching Hospital in the East Coast. Very excited, little nervous, but happy too
I just saw the thread about good ortho books, as I want to get one before I start working. I assume it's a good idea to join the NAON and possibly get a book with a discount there...?
Any other international nurses in the US gone to work in ortho??
Thanks for reading...
