I am currently looking for a change. My first and only job as a nurse has been my current employment working at a hospital on a medical/surgical/ortho floor for nearly three years. Although I work nights it still can be very challenging with pain management throughout the entire night, overnight family members, sundowning, alcohol withdrawal patients and etc. We usually have 6 a piece and sometimes are forced to have 7. There is a recovery room position open and I feel like it will be a little less demanding and stressful. Although all nursing jobs
are stressful in their own way, I feel I will like recovery room better. What are some of the pros of working as a recovery room nurse compared to med/surg, and what are some tips?
