Maybe I am getting desperate with this economy. I am a new grad and Ortho isn't my first choice, but right now there is an opening in the unit at an excellent hospital in my area. I don't have any experience at an ortho floor before, no rotations, etc. However, in this economy, I'll take what I could get in order to get my foot in the door.
I was just wondering to all the nurses out here, why did you guys choose to become an orthopedic nurse? What's so special about it?
Thanks a lot for your input. Who knows? I might end up liking it afterall.
