Hi everyone!I am a new grad nurse and I've been working in the operating room for 10 months now. I enjoyed working in the OR at the beginning because it was a totally new environment to me and I found it challenging. 10 months in and now I'm starting to get bored of doing the same tasks repeatedly. I find that in the OR I'm more busy dealing with equipment, supplies, charting, counting items, opening trays, etc. and less focused on my patient's medical history, lab results, etc. I miss interpreting lab values and assessing patients. In the OR the anesthesiologist/CRNA is the one who handles all of the patient's drips, IV's, and follows their labs closely. I thought about going back to school and becoming an acute nurse practitioner. But, I'm concerned about being able to find a Nurse Practitioner job in the future with no critical care RN experience. So, I would like to know if it is possible to go from OR nurse to floor nursing (Med-Surg, ICU, ED, etc.)? Or do you all think I should just apply to grad school with no floor nurse experience? Any advice would help! Thanks so much!
