I'm a senior nursing student and found out today that we aren't allowed to choose where we do our practicum, but are going to be assigned to med-surg floors of the hospitals we choose only. Is this the norm for everyone?? Going through nursing school
I thought we would be able to choose, whether it be OB, peds, ER, ICU, CCU med-surg, etc., to "try out" which speciality we have found we liked the best and wanted to try out, or get more experience in to get a job after we graduate. I'm disappointed and wondering if our class should try to change this or if this is normal, and I should just try to enjoy the experience?
