    • OR Circulator / Scrub Nurse 2000-Present
    • ... plus, ICU RN in USAR since 2003
    • Weekend Nites Charge RN at 10 bed ICU 1999-2000
    • Telemetry Floor RN 1998-1999
    I was a CST from 1995-1998, and still love the OR environment. However, tired of being a Circulator. I'll find out this month if accepted to the US Army Graduate Program in Anesthesia Nursing. If not accepted, then may leave the OR & return to ICU nursing.

    Nurse Anesthesia, solo. When I retire (soon I hope), I'd love to do some hands on nursing on the acute care ward in our 15 bed rural hospital. I have been giving anesthesia for 28 years and miss the nursing I was trained to do in the 60's. I'd even do a little geriatrics as well. I Love Nursing!

    12 hour shift (usually ave 14 hrs after charting) overnight med-surg with mixed geriatrics and pre/post surg pts in one of two large city hospitals in Ozland. Nurse-pt ratio at night 1:8-10. Track shoes. Pedometer usually shows 12 miles or more. Often no break and no "lunch". Pay is better at night and there is shift bidding for extra shifts, but feeling a bit burned out after four months there. However, there is usually help when someone has some sleepers but you get a tough draw like one or two transfers from an ICU who shouldn't have left ICU yet (like a "chronic" w/ a trach who starts throwing up after arrival from ICU at 2100 med time). We have one young nurse off to California soon for the sun and much better ratio. I'm a Blue Stater by nature and miss some of the reported benefits of unionization back East.

    I'm applying to work in the ER or Pediatrics, although I think I might like to do psych on the side. If I get a job in peds, I eventually want to do pediatric oncology.
