OK...so I got a call from a private hospital that I have interviewed with before, and have kept in touch with. Their DON is rediculously intelligent, passionate about her work, and driven. (would be amazing to work for) She basically offered me either a full-time or part-time (per diem) position over the phone. I currently work LPN float at one hospital (part time) and have a Tues/Thurs gig (also part time) at another small, community hospital. Obviously something would have to give. She essentially told me to dump my Tu/Th position, and come to work for her per diem. (more hours, better $$$)
My question is: I do not have any PACU experience...what are the benefits/drawbacks of working in a recovery environment? I eventually want to work in ICU/CCU, and am thinking that this position would be almost too good to pass up as far as "resume material" goes...
For you PACU nurses...what are the best and worse aspects of the job? Would you do it over again?
