If you dislike interacting with patients, then you might like OR. It is very task oriented, lots of computer charting, gophering, keeping the hairy eyeball open for disruptions in patient safety. I only know from my own personal experience but we got rid of first assists years ago (hired PA's who can write discharge prescriptions) and RN's not permitted to scrub. They can pay a surgical tech less and they are trained much better since they have their own educational programs. Depending on the size of the OR, you may have to take call which can be a real pain if you live too far away - you'll have to make sleeping arrangements. Long periods of boredom interrupted by brief periods of mad computer clicking.
