I start nursing school
in January and am hoping for some insight on possible career paths. I originally wanted to be an ICU RN, then travel nurse for awhile, then likely go back to school for an NP certification to work in acute care.
After working a children's hospital summer camp and thinking about peds a little more I was wondering how crazy it would be to start with adult critical care of some sort, then later on pursue a pediatric NP degree to work private practice.
Also in a slightly unrelated topic, how crazy would it be to maintain part time/per-diem work as an acute care RN while working as a Peds RN.
I was thinking it might be very difficult to maintain that wide of a knowledge base and still be effective in both positions.
Anyone who has experience or insight into this, I appreciate your help!
