I also shared a love for knowledge so in 2008 I went back for my MSN and became the Perioperative Educator at the hospital I had been working in for 10 years. After I graduated I became the Perioperative Clinical Nurse Specialist for the same hospital and have oversight of the Pre-op, OR, Postop, and Ambulatory areas for the nursing practice. I loved this part of my profession! It was a great job for many years!
I have since transitioned to a new state and was recruited to write policies and procures for a global publishing company for the Perioperative and Ambulatory nursing skills. I am thankful for the experience throughout my career to have had such wonderful life experiences to bring me to where I am today!
Try different areas, find what you love and blossom in it! There are so many opportunities as a nurse and so much room for us all!
