I've posted in this space before about my desire to start traveling soon. I work ER, but I have an acquaintance who works in the OR. We would like to travel together for our first assignment.
He has 2.5 years experience in OR and 1 year experience in telemetry before that. I only have 2 years total experience. I have had relatively little difficulty finding potential jobs, but he has repeatedly been told by both recruiters and hospitals that he needs at least 4 years in the OR before he will be considered. That just seems excessive to me since OR is so understaffed right now.
We are only looking in the DC/VA/MD area currently, as it is the only location we could agree on. Is that his problem?
