I've been an OR RN since right out of nursing school. I thought it was my dream job, but turns out I dread work everyday.
I've been a nurse in the operating room for a little over 1.5 years. Things got a little boring and I needed something to push me, so I joined the Open Heart Team. It's an extremely valuable experience to have and usually every OR would go crazy for you to join their team easily. I'm tired of all the call because it's like being on house arrest for so little pay, I'm sick of doing the same stuff everyday, I no longer wanna be a secretary for the surgeons, I don't wanna just count items or open packages, also tired of a lack of interaction of patients. Also, I joined this new facility and their open heart team in hopes of renewing my love for the OR. The new job hasn't done that and I've been in the facility for 3 months now. I think i'm just burned out of the OR. I really want more patient interaction. I want to work WITH the patients, not on them.
It just looks bad leaving a new facility after 3 months. I would love to work on an ortho floor or any med-surg floor to be honest.I don't have any floor or CNA experience so I feel like I'm basically fighting with new grads for a position. Do you think it's possible for me to find another job outside of the OR with only OR experience and having this new job of 3 months on my resume?
