    Is it impossible to get in OR or what?

    Yes I was thinking that. It seems like other areas do have them but over here they are scarce.

    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.

    What are were you able to get into a residency?
  4. 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?

    Thanks for the help. Does case management require you to be on call?

    Considering Hospice

    Hmmm ok. It’s just hard to find one that has a good reputation for some reason. Do you guys recommend being a visiting nurse, admissions nurse, case manager, or all combined?

    How many hours do hospice nurses usually work in one day? I’ve been told that they usually spend a lot more time in a given day since they go and see their set of patients which can range from 30 min to 1hr, they include the time spent in traffic, and they also include the time spent doing paperwork. All of these factors make them actually work more than 8 hours which is what they are being paid for. Is it worth it at the end?
