  1. Senior year..Eating Disorder RN jobs

    This is something I actually would like to get into. I need general psych experience, first.
  2. Why the high turnover in behavioral health?

    It's funny, I WANT to get into psych and am having a hard time because I have no psych experience.
  3. Question for OR nurses

    NO- it does NOT make sense to do a surgical tech program as an RN! PLEASE DO NOT do that!
  4. Roller board vs slider

    You're lucky, my OR has neither. We place garbage bags under the sheet to create a slide effect. I hate it and want to scream everyday
  5. Is 28 too old to become a travel nurse?

    too old?
  6. I'm sorry, how could you have contracted something? Did you have open cuts and wounds on your fingers?
  7. OR nurses, was it your calling?

    RoseQueen, can you tell me where? I'm in NYC and having a HELL of a hard time trying to leave the OR and into an ICU. I'm starting to wonder if it's just too competitive here, I don't know.
  8. OR to Burn Unit? Please advise

    Thanks so much for your input, it was really, really insightful! I'll let you know what happens =)
  9. OR nurses, was it your calling?

  10. Leaving the OR

    I have been an RN in the operating room x3 years now, straight out of school. I took the first and only job I was offered, which was the OR. Turns out I did love it, a LOT, at first- but fast forward to now and I am 120% burned out. I am absolutely u...

  12. Struggling with the culture...

    Every OR is tough, but in my experience some are much worse than others and yours sounds worse. I repeat, all ORs have a very particular culture....but some are much more toxic than others. They do say you have to prove yourself and sometimes that ta...
  13. Operating Room RN to Nurse Practitioner?

    Yes you can transfer to a floor. They say to "do it now" before "it's too late" and you become somewhat untrainable, say you have been in the OR for ten years, no one would hire you. However as my colleagues told me, "get out while you can." And that...
  14. OR Night Responsibilities

    Hi, what do you mean "put up trays?" I can definitely answer your question but I'm not sure what you mean.
  15. Instrument count question

    You count what you want to count. That's all there is to it.
