    Im gonna post even though this thread looks somewhat abandoned. My biggest wish is to work in a emergency room. But that dream cannot probably be fulfilled in less than five years, where I am from most ER's require at least two years of previous hospital experience before you get a job.

    Depending on where you live, there are hospitals that will take new grads into the ER. Working in the ER is quite different from working on the floor.

    I've always assumed I'd need to do clinical rotations to know where I'd best fit in. There are some areas that sound good, such as being a first assist, NP, or CRNA, but these require RN experience first, which was the original question.

    So depending on what I want to be when I grow up, I'll need to spent time in different departments. I think CRNA schools require ICU experience as a pre-req. I think NP schools require one to two years RN experience. And I think the first assist certification requires med-surg experience.

    At the risk of sounding repetative, I also want to work in the Emergency Room. Luckily I am in Southern California and they are hiring new grads into the ER.

    I plan to work in either a level III Neonatal ICU or Trauma Center ER. I lost my taste for adult after working with babies fighting for life, and I love the variety of patients you see in the ED.

    RNFA position actually requires OR experience. Med/surg will not help in any way. To go for certification, you will need two years experience before you will be eligible to sit for the CNOR exam, 2000 hours in that job area, and a BSN.

    IF at all possible I would like to do 6 months in Med-Surg to get my feet wet. Then I would like to do ICU.


    I like being able to move around. I am hoping within 5 years I will be experiences in ICU, Peds, PACU, Med-surg and OR.
