I miss the OR.

Specialties Operating Room


It left a bad work environment several months ago but it took me out of the OR and into a different nursing specialty. Its OK, everyone is great...love the hospital...but I miss the OR! They have an OR albeit small where I am at, I really wish I was working there but feel bad about leaving this new department short handed (and then there is the factor that I don't even know if they would hire me!). I miss the OR though. Just putting that out there.
