So, there’s a high chance I might accept a job in the OR. I have a question, for anyone who can be so kind to explain, what are huddles in the OR? Who’s in charge of them? And what is the role of the nurse in those huddles? Thanks in advance.
Yes I mean within the U.S and which state and city. I live in L.A and all residency programs that are available require acute care experience but for some reason it seems as though they do not take psych.
I’ve been looking into both. What I’ve found is that even the residency programs out there, which are not much for some reason, demand acute care experience of at least one year or two and as I noted above I only have psych experience so I have not been able to get into any of the residency programs I’ve applied to. Which area did you manage to get into the OR residency and did you have acute care experience?
I’ve been an inpatient psych nurse for the past almost 2 years since I passed my NCLEX. It is the only experience I have. I’ve decided to pursue different paths (even outpatient psych) now and have been considering transitioning to hospice or OR but wow it seems like getting in OR is impossible or something. Did you guys have the same problem getting into OR or is it because they just don’t take psych experience at all?
