Okay, so here's the thing. I currently work as a CNA on MS and have been there since January. I'm pretty burnt out and feel like it's time to try something new. I am in school to become a surg tech and then I want to become an RN...and I'm stuck as to whether I want to specialize in Trauma, Cardiac, ICU, or OR...probably OR.
I was looking on the job postings where I work and they have an opening for a Cath Lab Attendant
. I have a few questions on that note...
1. Does anyone know what a "cath lab attendant" does? If they are utitilized at your facility, are they simply there to transport patients?
2. Any of you who have done rotations in the OR...is the Cath Lab similar at all?
3. Do you feel, in your experience, it would just be more beneficial to me to keep working M/S until I graduate?
I would also like to add that I am not doing this to "put off" nursing school or as stepping stones to becoming an RN. If at this time I were able to devote myself and attend school to become a nurse, I would. But that will have to wait about another year.
Thanks for your time.
