OR Nurse in the Airforce?


Specializes in OR, Nursing Informatics. Has 4 years experience.


I've been feeling stuck at my current establishment. I work at a Level 2 trauma center, I've worked day shift for about a year and a half and night shift for almost a year. I've been looking at other places and other pathways to apply my surgical nursing skills (like Surgery Center or Plastic Surgery Clinics) and I happen to come across an e-mail from a recruiter from the Airforce that I met from one of the conferences I've attended in the past.

I wanted to connect with someone that has prior experience as an OR Nurse in the airforce or anyone that has knowledge about the job.

I have my MSN, hoping to start my DNP next year, CNOR certification, and pending RN-BC for Nursing Informatics as well (I'm hoping to be double certified by the end of the year).
