    I plan to work in the NICU after I graduate and eventually become a Neonatal Nurse Practitioner. I also plan to move to the Northeast after we sell our house in few years. I have all my long term goals written down, for when I need motivation to get through nursing school.

    This may have been previously discussed, but I am curious about what other students goals are in nursing after receiving the long-awaited license? I'm curious about the specialties that y'all want to go into and/or what further degrees or certifications are planned for the future.

    As for me, I am hoping to find a job in a cardiac stepdown or telemetry unit and possibly work into a critical care unit. I would love to eventually become a CNS in the area of cardiac or critical care or maybe even a CRNA someday:Melody:
    Great thread!!!

    My goal (long-term) is to make a difference in my patients' lives. My goal (short-term) is to work in a trauma 1 center in the ER. I like the fast-paced style and the fact that you must think quickly. I like the challenge. If not that, I would love to work in the OR.

    I will graduate with a ADN in May, 2007. My goal has always been to work in L&D, post-partum, or the NICU. I will start semester #2 in peds and L&D, I am very excited! I will eventually go on for my BSN and then who knows...

    Wow, there are just so many diverse areas of nursing to go into. It's awesome that we can be in a career that allows us to positively impact lives every day, but still have so many choices in speciality :Melody: .

    I will be starting clinicals on the 9th, not sure what area I want to work in after graduation. Seems like ages away, but I am sure time will fly by fast. I would eventually love NICU though at some point in my career.

    Wanting to work in L&D and become a CNM is the reason I went to nursing school, although going into my last semester I can say that I have enjoyed all my rotations.
    Ditto every single thing she said, except I'm going into last year, not last semester. This is *exactly* what I want to do! We'll see if I'm singing the same tune after OB this semester, though, huh? ;-)

    I graduate next Dec and I want to work in the ED or on the trauma floor. I plan on entering the MSN Program when I graduate because I want to be a Family Nurse Practicioner in the worst way

    I had a ton of interests when I first started school. I have narrowed it down to my top three:

    Transplant

    Neuro

    Burn


    And when the facilites wear me out-I would like to finish my career off in hospice.

    Fun thread!

    After I get my license, I plan to get certified to become a diabetes educator, so I'll go w/my BSN for a while, and then I'll probably keep going to a NP - definitely working with kids all the way! (I have diabetes myself, guess I've been hanging around with them too long, lol!)

    I want to work in NICU. If not NICU then some sort of critical care. Possibly flight nursing in the future after I'm done with my BSN.
