Poll: As a male in Nursing school, my goal/desire is to work in this area....

  1. 0 I thought a visual would be nice for us once folks have placed their preference vote.

    Also, I have placed a similar poll in our Male Nursing Forum. That poll can be viewed here:

    Good comparison threads when viewed together.

    I can't decide! But shoot, I'm only a pre-nursing student...so I only know about the specialties what I've read and heard. I've seen the workings of hospice, to a certain extent, and LTC...since we just placed my grandma in a nursing home. I'm kinda drawn towards critical care, but, hospice/ltc nurses now have a very special place in my heart. So...I can't decide. :d And then it's like every time I read about some speciality, I think ooo that sounds fun...I want to try that! So, I don't know what I want to be when I grow up!

    Oh, wolfie...I forgot to add...your posts about psych nursing have me considering that bit. :d And I've overcome a lot of obstacles in my life, so some people say I'd be a good canidate for rehab...and it seems very rewarding!

    Can we marry Peds and ER?

    I see myself eventually as a Pediatric NP in the ER of a Peds hospital. And then education - I love to teach

    I think I'll probably lean towards ED work. I really love working pre-hospital, especially outdoor semi-remote (ski patrol), so I (and my family and friends) figure the ED is where I'll be happiest.

    I really want to become an RNFA, so I hope out of school I land a position in the affiliated hospital in the OR and maybe get some OJT as a scrub instead of being a steady circ. If all else fails, I'll just go to scrub tech school since the RNFA programs require a 2 year minimum experience.

    Gotta get my CRNA. I will not be satisfied until I do... I like the ER/ICU stuff alot too, but I have 2 anesthesiologists helping me through the in and outs of the medical profession so I kinda take after them. Never know, I might wind up in med-school for anesthesia if I can't stay out of college.

    I think I would like to learn more about being an OR nurse. The idea of seeing all sorts of operations and procedures fascinates me. I'm also very interested in working in a burn unit. I saw a program about some of the things they are doing to heal burned skin and it's really amazing.
