Job interview next week!!!

As some of you know, I've detailed much of my struggle within the ICU and my frustrations. So I finally got up the courage to finally make the move to move on. I will miss the traumas and the interesting cases but I need something new and a bit different so I decided to apply for the PACU.

I need to come up with a list of questions to ask the RN who will be showing me around the pacu. Can anyone offer some suggestions of what to ask?
Good Luck I hope you get it!!1) Whats the pt/nurse ratio?2) Does your PACU have peds pts?I don't know if you should ask this or not but when I was a student I was in a PACU @ trauma I facility that allowed the pts to have visitors in the PACU & they took pedi pts but no PICU pts & no skin grafts of any kind. Skin graft pts went back to burn ICU. Thought the visitation was a little unusual & I never saw that in another facility but then again I'm not a PACU nurse so maybe that is more common then what I'm thinking.

Good luck!

Thanks. What should I say when they ask me why I want to leave my current position? I was planning on saying that I wanted to get experience in a different area of nursing or something to that effect.

Ask about the hours and call requirements. My hospital's PACU nurses do not work 7-7. They work mostly when post-op "traffic" is heaviest. There are some odd shifts with start times of 11am or 1pm and 10 hour shifts.
