What area do you want to work in after you graduate?

  1. 0
    I'm sure I won't be the only guy to say that I want to work in critical care after I graduate. Havn't really got anything narrowed down yet because I don't know enough about all of them to make up my mind, but I'd like to work in a SICU, MICU, or CCU. Probably SICU or CCU because I intend on applying to CRNA school eventually and I'll get to see and do more if I work in one of those units. Plus this way I could probably get the facility I'm working for to pay for classes and certificaitons I'd have to take. At some point I want to get my CCRN too. I'm all about learning when it comes to stuff I'm interested in

    So what area do you want to work in after you've graduated!?

    Well i'm apprenticing at the CIC/CCU unit here, my first choice was ICU.. but the more i think about it , I really like cardiac.. I applied for a graduate nurse position there, interviewed, and got the position.

    A lot of people have told me that i'm making a good decision.

    thinking NICU, if not that then ICU. Also plan to go CRNA.

    I hear that most CRNA schools prefer adult ICU experience. Luckily for me that's where I wanted to work anyway!

    Yea I heard the same so i'm still up in the air. I'm going to call the schools I plan on applying to before I actually make a job decision.

    Ditto on just about all replies. I also want to be a CRNA, so I'm going the ICU route. I'm kinda leaning towards CVICU because of some of the good posts I've read on the Student CRNA forum. I guess I'll figure it all out when the time get closer.

    I guess I'm strange. I'm one of the few males in our class that ISN"T interested in CRNA school. I do want to get either a CNS or NP tho, possibly in Trauma and/or peds. I'm loving clinicals finally too....never thought I'd like ortho M/S, but it's fun and challenging.
