Registered Nurse (RN), Operating Room in Los Angeles:
"Operating Room Nurse."
Pros: I enjoy watching, assisting, scrubbing and circulating in a variety of surgeries. I enjoy working in Pediatrics. You get to work with the latest technology and participate in research. You feel like your are part of the operation when scrubbing. You get to work with one patient at a time. And the hours tend to be good.
Cons: I feel that the pay in the pediatrics environment is lower than elsewhere. Sometimes there are too many people trying to make decisions. The job is very fast paced and wearing a mask, hat, and Googles all the time can be difficult. Furthermore, you must have excellent bladder control because you only get two half hour breaks during an 8hr shift (most OR nurses work 5 8's which can be good and bad). There are a lot of demanding surgeons, anesthesiologists, and parents to answer to. The nurse must manage the needs of multiple people. There is always pressure to go faster and faster and move the cases along. A five minute delay is the end of the world.
