ICU to outpatient surgery center

Posted

I’m a relatively newer nurse. I just reached my one year mark as an ICU nurse. I do feel burnt out and something very personal happened that really motivated to look elsewhere. I feel I needed a change for my wellbeing. I got offered an RN position in an outpatient surgery center primarily vascular procedures. It’s a salaried position, 4- 10 hour shifts no weekends, no call and they close for most major holidays. Anyone here work a similar schedule or come from a similar background? Change can be good but also very nerve wracking. Some insight would be helpful. I’m a little iffy with a salaried job I’ve always been hourly.

hi! sorry no one got back to you, but Im finding myself in the exact position you were in. How did the transition go? Are you happy?
