I have a question I would like your feedback on. I am a Nursing assistant on a surgical unit at a local teaching hospital. I was chosen as 1 of 10 Nurse Interns for the summer at the hospital. I chose to work as an intern on an Ortho unit (I have some interest in Ortho, I know who figures?) Anyway this morning my assistant nurse manager congratulated me on being chosen as a Nurse Intern, but she asked why I hadn't considered working on my current unit as an intern for the summer. I told her that I basically had an interest in Ortho and that I had some experience working with surgical patients and was just looking to get some experience somewhere else in the hospital. I really don't know what kind of nurse I want to be when I graduate in December and it is really starting to stress me out because everyone I know has some idea about where they want to work when they graduate. My ANM stated that they still had an opening for a NI on the unit and she would like to have me consider staying with them. When my internship is over I will go back to being a NA on the Surgical unit and am now worried about hard feelings if I chose not to be a NI on my home unit. I'm looking for advice!
Thanks for listening!
