Can anyone brief me on RN position in this field? what to expect? what type of cases will they do over there?

It must be in ENT speciality. Sinuscopy, tympanostomy, T &A's, etc. That's my 2 cents.

eent is simply eyes, ears, nose, and throat.

it is hard to say with certainty but there should be a lot of different things like for

eyes; phacoemulsification and other types of iol replacements as well as retinal banding to blepharoplasty.

ears; myringotomy to tympanoplasty to inner ear procedures.

nose: deviated septum repair to endoscopic sinus surgery to a balloon sinuplasty http://www.entclinicofiowa.com/sinuplasty-balloon-sinuplasty-video.htm

throat: t&a to thyroidectomy to on rare occation something like zenker's diverticula. http://www.nature.com/gimo/contents/pt1/full/gimo41.html

to know for sure what they do, you should talk to someone that works at the facility.

They also involve "Acoustic Neuroma" cases that are fairly long, and involve ENT surgeons and Neurosurgeons.
