LPN Anesthesia Attendant?

Nurses General Nursing


Hi everyone, I'm a new LPN grad. In my area 9 out of 10 jobs for an LPN are either in a nursing home or a doctor's office. Until recently a job came up for an LPN Anesthesia Attendant. The job application says something along the lines of "Performs IV insertions and assists with central line insertions". I can't find anything about this position on Google other than the application, so I'm pretty sure they've created the title.

Does anyone have any ideas what this job would be like? I don't want to spend all day starting IVs, but I love the operating room setting. Would it be likely I stay in the OR during the entire surgery, or maybe not at all? I'm confused. I don't want to be essentially an IV nurse. Any help is appreciated :)

Apply for it. Any interview experience is good.

From what you have described, in my hospital you'd be in Diagnostic Imaging. I know LPNs work there and they like it. Hours are better than on the floor.

Face it you are a new grad with no experience, if you are lucky enough to land this be grateful. You never know what you will learn in any job.

Specializes in OR, Nursing Professional Development.

Google anesthesia technician. Sounds pretty much like their job.
