Hospital OR to ASC


  • Specializes in Periop Nursing. Has 5 years experience.

Hi all,

Does anyone have experience in an ASC after the hospital?

I have been in the OR at a busy trauma hospital for 2 years, and dual time with the CVOR for the past year. Being on the heart team especially makes me feel married to the hospital. So, I am seeking a change. 

I’m being offered an RN position that does pre/intra/post op care at an ASC associated with the well known clinic in the city. 

They are excited about hiring me for this particular position because I am already an experienced circulator with scrub experience (the “hardest” aspects to train they mentioned of course). 

I will be living outside of call limits very soon, so this sounds good on paper, but I don’t know anyone that can help me with the pros/cons.

Any input is appreciated!
