Getting ready to wrap up my 1st year of nursing and am looking on the horizon for what I might do next. I've been in med-surg, okay only since June, but still! I have learned a ton but I know I don't want to make my career here. I'm eligible to transfer to a different unit next June so I think it's time to start forging a path now. I really don't want to go out of the frying pan into the fire. I am not afraid of hard work, but I am very weary of the chaos that is med-surg (at least it is on our floor). I can handle lack of predictability, I just would like to move away from 5 patients all on their call lights at the same time :-)
So if you love your nursing job, please post so and tell us what it is about you love! And if you want to be honest about the not-so-great parts, I would love to know about those as well.
