    OR travelers..

    Please tell me what you hate most about traveling as an OR nurse. Is it hard to fine 12hr shift contracts in CA, without call and without scrubbing?

    Is it possible to get the holidays off?

    Most surgery nurses I know I'm not!! Been a nurse almost 3 yrs and haven't worked a turkey day or Christmas yet!!

    Pros and Cons of Working in the OR

    we have nurses that do weekends, and either usually monday or friday with taking no call.

    Consent issue

    all Dr.s, anesthesia and nurses see patients in the preop holding area at my hospital . The anesthesia providers cannot(or atleast shouldn't-it has happened) bring patients back until the circulator signs the nurse to nurse handoff. So usually what ends up happening is anes calls a million times into the room, can we come back yet-can we come back yet? no patient comes back with incomplete consents, period.

    RV's anyone???

    How do you plan for finding places to camp and how much they cost? Is it way to find places near hospitals?

    Already make $42/hr. Is travel nursing worth it?

    Is the stipend per month? I have been wanting to travel for a long time. I work in the OR and have my California license. That's were we want to go because we visit family there every year. I would like to know what I would gross weekly on average to just have an idea. I would stay central to northern California

    Barnes-Jewish starting RN salary

    Night-$2.90 11p-7a Weekend $2.40 Evening $2.40 3p-11p (I think 3, maybe) Pay here sucks. Only way to make decent money is to work extra bonus shifts. Double bonus $20/hr single bonus $10/hr

    ICU to OR

    @sop you've been in the OR for 30yrs. So in 30 yrs are you still just circulating and scrub? I'm going to OR but I am worried about advanced degrees long term. There seems to be limitation for advanced degrees for OR everything seems to be someway affiliated with bedside exp

    Advanced degree and RNFA

    Options for RNFA's with advanced degrees. What advanced degree is most beneficial to have alongside being an RNFA? What are the options?

    ICU to OR

    I have 1.5 exp acute med, I am starting OR this month. Bedside was killing me. I plan on picking up prn bedside to keep those skills till I determine OR is all I want. Or what I want to major in.
  16. I am about to make the switch to the OR from medicine. I am really scared I am making the wrong decision. Everyone I talk to about this says they love the OR, unless they do not work there. I want to love my job. I am just scared I am limiting what I can do long term.
