    it's not on the list, but respiratory is what I would hate. People not being able to breathe kinda scares me. Also I have a really hard time looking after COPD patients. i don't like traccys and sputum. I dislike it when we get resp patient's on my ward so couldn't work on a whole ward full of them.

    ICU,

    I worked there for five months and hate it. The patient lying there for four months, not getting better, or worse, every day a different hole, a different machine, a rotorest bed and so many machines to deal, so many lines and every single dot in the paperwork has to be in the same exact place and it has to be done this way not that way and at this time and not this other, and very task oriented, no support whatsoever form other disciplines, it was a really bad experience. It did killed me to see every day was the same, for months until the patient gets moved, dies or something happen, I was used to ER environment, something new, use the nursing process to the fullest extent.

    MED/SURG!!!!
    For someone who wants to be a nurse, I cannot handle bodily fluids other than urine and stool. Drainage and phlegm just make me gag, and once I get started, there is no stopping me!

    Loooooove Geriatrics and Psych. Put the two together...even better! I'm surprised how many people hate psych...or maybe I'm just a weirdo!

    I could NEVER work in oncology. My dad, grandfather, & grandmother all died from cancer. It would just hit home for me too much.

    Not on the list but for me it would be any type of inpatient setting. Hospital/LTC/etc politics are not for me. Went into nursing with no intention of doing anything but community/public health and research.
