With the end of my masters program in sight and the prospect of working as an advanced practice nurse becoming more real every day, I would say that as of now I am happy with my decision. But....not so sure my answer would be the same if my choices were limited to bedside RN. It is good, honest, honorable work, but I can't imagine doing it for the next 20 years. I have learned so much as a bedside nurse, and have amassed a lifetime worth of stories.
Not sure if there is such a career that would pass the "20 year" test. I am amazed at the number of conversations at work with other RNs and RTs with topic of "finding that new amazing career".
