Is Eye Ambulatory surgery center as a circulating RN a good start for a new grad?

January 4th, 2024

Yes - as baby boomers age more and more of us will be having eye surgery!

Only if you're planning on staying in that type of work. You could possibly transition to a pre-op/pacu after some experience. I always recommend Med-Surg in a hospital for new grads. You will see a little bit of everything & hone your critical thinking skills.

Very limiting unless you are interested in eyes.

If you plan on only specializing in the field of optometry. But as a new grad it would be good to get more experience in a hospital. As you see and learn alot there. And there are supervisors you can ask and learn from. But the experience in a learning hospital is fantastic.

No. You have to have experience and, with that, will come speed and efficiency. I worked eyes for 14 years, but only after 2 years as a floor nurse.
