I will be graduating soon and I am carefully considering where I want to look for future employment. I am seeking a position that offers challenging work, ability to use regional anesthesia when possible and the opportunity to have a positive impact on patient care. Not to limit my options, I am researching all potential employers, including the federal government. Any insights on working at VA hospital, Indian Health Services, or military? Are you allowed to place blocks? Are you allowed to function independently? Any positive points or drawbacks? Thank you for your comments.
