Perfusion Job Shadow: Indianapolis, or Indiana

Editor’s Note:


Indianapolis?  Having been raised in West Lafayette, IN, I know better than to call it “NapTowne” 🙂  Anyway, this young ICU nurse is looking for a job shadow opportunity, I know her personally- and included her in a post over a year ago- re; An IABP transport from Lafayette to Indy.  Plz help?

My name is Christine and I am a prospective perfusion student. I am hoping that I can shadow you or that you can put me in contact with someone who likes shadows. I live in Indianapolis but I am willing to make the drive to wherever there is an opportunity.

I am a CVICU nurse and I have been working as an RN for about 5 years, and almost all of it has been CVICU. My favorite part of what I do in the ICU has always been the machines, whether it is ECMO or IABPs, and teaching new hires. I have actually never seen a perfusionist work in the OR though. I have done my research, but before I make a leap into a new career, I think it is vital that I shadow for a pumped case.

Thank you for your consideration and time. I look forward to hearing from you.

P.S.-We have actually worked together before and I am in the blog. (Locums ScrapBook entry from 3/23/16)
