What to in the future

  1. Hello! I am a currently in my first year as a new grad nurse ( in ICU 😯). I've always known I wanted to go back to school and am loving the experience I'm getting in ICU but don't know how I feel anymore about being a NP in ICU/ED as I originally planned. I absolutely love travel more than anything but also don't have much of a desire to travel nurse, at least not long term. I might want to go the Professor route after getting my NP, but I wanted to ask you all about my choices. Is there any sort of nursing based career that allows me to travel for work? I'm talking like a few days here and there per month, not months at a time. I don't think I want to stay at the bedside for the rest of my life, and am interested in furthering my education in the future.

    My friend travels for work. She works for the state and I have seen a lot of their rn positions require travel including overnight. They do not have np positions like that here that I am aware of. She evaluates individuals for resources so she is nit involved in direct patient care.
