I have worked med/surg nights for 15 years and am wanting a change. I have a friend who works outpatient PACU at a large area hospital. I told her I was getting tired of working med/surg floor and also tired of nights, but too scared to work med/surg days. She talked to her boss and her boss said she would consider hiring me and I put in my application which she is reviewing. I would love to hear some feedback from PACU nurses who have come from different areas of nursing and if they like working PACU. Is it stressful? Is it harder than working med/surg? Are the anesthesiologists difficult to work with? There is so many changes in computer charting to keep up with and patients continue to be sicker on the floor and I'm hoping for a less stressful area to work in. I also want to work in an area that I can feel I do a better job at and not feel like I'm being pulled in so many different directions at one time, which is what happens on the floor alot.
