Job offers to get in OR

Published

I have been job searching for 3 months now. I've tried to get into new OR training programs without any luck. I've done pre op for open hearts & vascular for 3 years. So I've decided to try to get into a hospital (we recently moved) first as a per diem nurse.

I currently have 2 offers- one in pre op and the other in pre/post cath lab holding area. Any insight on which would be best to eventually get into the OR? I know in pre op in my old job I could have easily gotten into the OR if I wanted (after working there for awhile) but not sure if that is true in a larger hospital.

I like pre op. I'm good at it. But I've always wanted to try circulating.
