    I plan to work in a cardiac stepdown or telemetry unit when I graduate, and also start grad school as soon as possible. I hope eventually to work as an NP in cardiology or infectious disease.

    Never thought I could handle it before, but now I am willing to run to the Peds floor! I started this obstacle course wanting to go into L&D, still might, but after volunteering at the hospital, I found that I have a calling for kids.

    I'm thinking about palliative care. I'm also interested in research. My goal is to complete my BSN and then the MSN directly following -afraid if I don't commit to it right away, I might not get back for a while!

    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.

    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.
