I have been in a CVICU for a little over a year and a half. This was my first job out of school. While I have adjusted for the most part and enjoy some aspects of my job, I knew from the start that I was not a fan of bedside. I am doing my best to really give myself time on this unit to absorb, as there is so much to learn. It has been a wonderful opportunity but soon I'd like to transition into another area. While the grass isn't always greener, I feel ready to try a different path in this career.
I've thought about cath lab recently, but since I was younger I have always wanted to be an OR nurse. Anyone switch from ICU or something similar to the OR? If so, how did it go? I know they are quite different and both very stressful in their own way. I would love to hear about anyone that has transitioned into the OR! Thanks!
