I am currently in my 2nd year of 3 studying.
I have done a number of practicum weeks ina variety of settings as set out by my school such as:
Community ie: ambulance, district nursing, hospice
Now heres the big question of the day... Next year we get to choose an elective and i am wanting something that will help in my state finals. Such as what nursing area should i choose so that when I do my states i will know and have good first hand experience off??? So that i can look at the question and go 'Oh yeah i know that answer cause i have knowledge from such-in-such'.
I was thinking of doing GP (general practioner nursing) but am thinking that may not teach me more of the basics, like respiratory, cardiac, diabetes etc. GP may not be that broad a choice for state finals.
I have heard medical is the place to go but at the same time i am always hearing how awful it is. LOL. But again i can suck it up as long as i learn stuff towards helping me pass that exam to become a RN.
Any ideas?? Thanks in advance for any suggestions
