This may be useful to someone thinking about switching to the OR from med surg (or other floor nursing position), or a new grad deciding between a first job on the floor vs a Periop internship.

This was created by my brother-in-law, who is in his 2nd year as an Perioperative RN (circulator) following 2 1/2 years on a med-surg telemetry unit at a 225 bed urban acute care hospital, and 3 years as staff nurse then house charge nurse at a 285 bed LTC. He made it to help him decide whether to stay on Med-Surg telemetry or take a Periop internship.

Some of the items are personal to him (like which schedule is more conducive to church attendance) or specific to the facility; but I hope it may still be of use. (Shared with his permission.)
