Looking forward to med-surg

  1. Hello everyone, I just wanted to say I am looking forward to med-surg. I have a little while to go, I am only in my second year of college. I spent time shadowing a lot of nurses and decided that when I graduate med-surg is for me. Out of all the specialties that I have shadowed and asked questions about, I think this specialty will afford me with the greatest opportunity to learn several different and challenging skills. What I find odd is that I am the only one in my class that has any interest in this area. Everyone I talk to is trying to be an anesthetist. Any advice on skills I can work on now? Thank you for your time, Frank.

    That's where the money is at. That's why they're interested.

    I too am the only one in my class that is interested in med-surg. Everybody else want to work in L&D or pedi. I absolutely love med-surg!!!!

    First, I would like to applaud you for recognizing that M/S is indeed a speciality. Join your local chapter of AMSN to network and gain valuable knowledge. Be receptive to learn everything thrown at you. Good Luck

    Is there anybody in Los Angeles? One of my friends, she is working for a RN school as Med-surg instructor, but she said she needs one more person for Med-Surg. Anyone interested?
