Hi i was reading your post, im curious, which unit did you pick?
I work as a pca in the pacu. I do blood draws when i work down in the preop area and i do accuchecks before and after surgery. i hook the patients up to the monitors when they come out, i sit and watch pedi patients when they come out so the nurses can get report, i sometimes get respirations on pt for the anesthetists when they come out. I learn alot by watching the nurses interact with the patients, how they do report and discharge instructions. I get to learn alot about the meds they given to patents post surgery.
I also have nights and weekends off. I am starting nursing school
in the fall, a part time evening weekend program so its good for me to work during the day.
well goodluck with your new job!!
