1. Hi, I'm a recent grad with a few months psych experience. I just accepted a med surg position. Has anyone switched from psych to med surg and feel they made the right decision?

    Any advise would be appreciated.

    Never done it, but have been told many times that psych right out of nursing school is a bad idea unless psych is what you want to do your whole career. You have not had time to practice your techniques or anything. The pace and work load are completely different. You might have a little more adapting to do to re-organize your time, and might want to refresh yourself on P&P for techniques.

    Yes I can see why. I like psych but I don't think I could do it my entire career. Lots of the nurses I work with are really lazy. I like to be busy and it's what i thought. I just hope I can adjust ok )
