I am graduating from my accelerated BSN program this May. I have decided I would eventually like to become a primary care APRN who works specifically with the adolescent population. I had a clinical rotation in a urban high school "school based health clinic" and really enjoyed it. I am trying to figure out what types of jobs to apply for. Should I try to work on a medical surgical floor? A pediatric medical surgical floor? I was not a "peds" person until my rotation in the school based health clinic. I thought I wanted to work with adults. I am not saying that I am not good with younger kids, just that my interest is in the adolescent and older population. I do understand that adolescents are still children, but I find them to be a unique population both mentallly and physiologically. I did a little research on school based health clinics in the area I will be applying, and I don't see many RN roles. They seem to be mostly staffed by APRNs, MDs and medical assistants.
Any tips would be greatly appreciated!
