They monitor vital signs after surgery and stabilize the patient as they become conscious. They also help manage pain for the patients. There are two phases in the PACU. Phase I PACU is where patients are sent immediately after surgery. The average stay here is one hour. Patients are kept here until any breathing issues are remedied and vital signs are stabilized. Once pain is under control and they are mostly awake, they will be sent to another unit in the hospital to recover, or if they are an outpatient, they will go to Phase II PACU. Phase II PACU has patients rest in a chair, usually have a small snack and walk up and down the hallway. From here they are discharged and sent home. Some PACU RNs will also assist and prep the patient before surgery.   Often, travelers earn higher pay than staff nurses, but pay will vary based on assignment location, requirements, certifications, and your experience.
