I've gone on a few interviews and now I have a dilemma.... interventional radiology with cross train to cath lab which is mon-fri and call rotation. The other is cardiac intermediate with eventual cross train to ICU. This is three 12's rotating day/night and every third weekend. I can't decide! Anyone work in IR??? Do you love it? Do you like your schedule?

Med/surg, but I have worked inpatient mental health and post acute rehab. The bulk of my career has been med/surg. Goals...pick up more skills so I can be more marketable. 1-2 year goal prn or per diem this way I can still make the bills and as a single mom all my daughters events...

Both appeal to me....a regular normal people schedule almost scares me though. I haven't done that since I was in the military- 7 years!

As a single mom, would the rotating call schedule of IR work for you? Who would watch your daughter if you get called into a case in the middle of the night?

My mom or grandma is in the area. But this is somewhat a setback to me...both jobs are offering nearly the same hourly rate. Not sure how much overtime there is in IR... med/surg is wide open and I usually pick up an additional shift or two a pay period and still have days off. I don't know if intermediate will be similar. With IR Monday-Friday I feel will get to be really long... getting my daughter up and ready for school pick her up and get home adds additional time to my day...
