On the contrary, I have nothing but good things to say when working with or surgeons. I have worked there for quite a while and we work well together. I still deal with family members, but not all day long as you mentioned. I understand the nursing care received after surgery is a continuation of what we do. With that being said, I am fulfilled knowing that what we've done for our patients is complete. I do miss the fact that I didn't expand on the skills I have now. I am in the process of going back to school as well and in knowing that, management isn't something that isn't of interest to me. I would like to eventually teach the clinical aspect of what we do in the OR. Yes, I hope to venture out and be precepted.
