Hi all! =) Everyday on here, I see a lot of posts from people who went straight into one particular field of nursing right out of nursing school
, and never looked back. You people are lucky.
I unfortunately, have ALWAYS been one of those people who cannot decide on ANYTHING.
I went into med-surge after nursing school for that reason; planned on hanging out there for a year or two and then going on to a different specialty. The problem is that now I've been a med surge nurse for two years, and still am not sure what I want my specialty to be! I know I don't want to stay in med surge for the rest of my career, but I'm not sure where to go from here.
There is a PACU position open in my hospital that I do have a very good chance of getting, and I really do need to give it a shot. Maybe I'll like it. I hope that it will be 1:1 care; THAT'S something that I feel like I would really enjoy.
Stories, people! How did YOU find your niche? =)
