I hope everyone is well. I realize that flownet is mostly for people seeking vascular information. However, I'm finding myself at a bit of a crossroads. I'm a fairly new vascular sonographer and with the exception of working a temporary assignment for a surgical center on Staten Island that ended in September, I have not been able to find any work. I have my RVT license and so I keep up with my vascular knowledge by reading as many JVU articles as I can, I watch seminars on SVU and Sonoworld, I dig into my old textbooks, etc.
The main challenge I've been facing is how to keep up with my scanning skills. I have tried to reach out to some practices to see if they are in need of an extra set of hands, however that has proven to be unsuccessful. I can't return to my old clinical sites or school since there are other paying students there and obviously it is only fair that I pass along the torch. I'm beginning to feel as though I might have to count my losses and try for whatever work I can find at this point but I'm finding it hard to throw in the towel.
I just would really appreciate anyone's two cents on how a someone like myself can stay current and up-to-date with my RVT skill-set. Obviously if anyone has any employment advice or is in need of a tech with prior experience independently selling vascular devices (Trivex and competitor to EVLT), I am all ears! :)
Thanks in advance and best regards to everyone,
