I have been offered two different positions where I currently work. One is outpt surgery, the other OR circulator. I am an ER nurse and really like what I do....but, I have found my self getting a little aggravated with people that abuse the ER. I try very hard not to show it but I know I do. I am so sick of seeing the same frequent flyers... It is stressful, and hard....in constant motion.
I was offered a position in outpt surgery....nice easy job....weekends off, and all holidays, but there is call. Then I was offerd a position as OR circulator....stress, a lot to learn, have to take call....but very interesting. I cannot for the life of me decide what to do....stay where I am or take them up on one of the offers. I have shadowed the new positions, and all I know so far is I hate recovery for the ones that will be admitted.....outpt recovery not too bad.
I have tried to do pros & cons... Outpt work 4 days a week 2 12's 2 8's same day off every week... weekends & holidays off....have to take call.
ER 4 12's one week- 3 12's next week....all my days together giving me 3 off one week 4 off the next week....and I just went to days....work holidays, and every other Sat. I am very comfy here, good at what I do....but feel like I am getting a little burnt out.
OR circulator M-F 8 hour shifts....on call...holidays & weekends off.
I just keep going round & round....any advice?
btw...I just saw my typo in the title & dont know how to edit (dilemma)
