Is it just me, or am I crazy?
I'm in nursing school right now and I have NOOO desire to work in a hospital. None. Is this normal? I feel weird for wanting to be a nurse but hating the hospital... I'm just trying to get through the clinicals and graduate, so I can go the area I really want to be in: Geriatrics.
l LOVE working with the geriatric population, especially those with dementia and Alzheimer's. I have been working for the past 4 years as a CNA in assisted living/LTC, and I plan on staying there when I graduate as a nurse. I really feel like it's my calling.
I just feel weird because most people in my nursing class hate LTC, and they all want to work in either ER, L&D, or ICU.
Am I the only wacko here?
