Ive been an RN for 2.5 years. When I graduated nursing school I had zero clue as to what I wanted to go into. I LOVED my peds, patho, and situations where I had to work fast and think of my feet.
I started out on a telemetry floor. I loved taking care of the cardiac patients and liked when I had to think quick. Loved having CABG and stent pt's... I did NOT however like really working with adults and non compliant patients who really could care less about taking care of themselves. I was there 1.5 years.
I had the opportunity to go to a postpartum unit due to staffing on that unit. I took it because I was excited to get some kind of pediatric experience. While I LOVE working with the infants and doing their assessments and learning the nursing care, I find myself very bored with the *usually* healthy mothers. Dont get me wrong, it is a very busy unit and Im on my feet
. I have learned things I would have never otherwise learned, and Im very thankful for the experience.
But, the only times I have found myself VERY interested have been during my first hemorrhage and Pre-E patient, both of which I was eager to learn on how to treat and handle. But when I have a pt who is just on vitamins.....I get bored.
Any suggestions as to what area of nursing I should go into? I have some in mind but would like opinions from others as well. I reallyyyy appreciate any feedback
