Nurses: Are you where you started in Nursing?

  1. [font=franklin gothic medium]i was wondering if nurses tend to stay in the same area of nursing more than they change areas. i was also wondering if, even if they have changed areas, they still consider the area they started in as their fav. area.

    I've been in almost every area of nursing because I get bored easily if I'm not learning new things. Some of the areas I revisited years later and found them essentially unchanged from what they used to be. But, after 28 years, I'm still an RN! :hatparty:

    I started working in general ward after graduation and passing my boards in the PHIL shifted a year after and became a police officer working as an RN in a drug treatment facility and now I am a Psyche nurse here in Albany after hurdling the thousand and one exam to get me here..no regrets..I love where I am now!
