    I think the reason so many hospitals want new grads for med surg is because the seasoned nurses know better, and steer clear of med surg.

    This is true. While Med Surg is a great training ground, it's also the toughest duty around. After working Med Surg as an extern during the summer, I can see why a lot of RN's hate it and got out. I'll definitely think twice before I work Med Surg again.
