So I was just recently hired in my new hospital and much to my surprise I was assigned in the Hyperbaric Unit. I did not even show interest on this area, and have never had any experience driving a chamber before. I thought I'll give it a try, see if its interesting, plus an additional skill will make my resume look good.
So, I am at the moment gathering information on this area of specialization..like the job market, work load, certifications etc. Any hyperbaric nurses out there who can shed light on this fairly new field for me? What do you like or dont like about HBOT? Also, my nurse manager in the area is a wound specialist in addition to her hyperbaric certification, I have read that this goes hand in hand... any advice on this one?
Another concern is (may be out of topic) my fiance is in the Navy, and when we decide to tie the knot he wants me to move with him with every orders, so therefore I might have to put in job applications every 3 years, and I was wondering if there are many opportunities for hyperbaric nurses all over the US or in other countries..
