The title says it all! Everyone in my nursing program hates med surg and are hoping to have more option besides med surg when school is over. I extern on a med surg floor and most of the new nurses tell me that they only work med surg because they were unable to obtain employment in their specialty of choice. Even on this website it seems that a lot of nurses are interested in OB, ICU and ER and you never really run across too many that wanna work med surg. What is the issue with med surg?
