Here is the deal,
Med-surg is great! You will learn so much, your skills will improve a lot, as will your time management and critical thinking ones. They say that you should start in med-surg for a reason. With that being said, there may be days where you will miss your current job... A lot! The med-surg floor (at least the one I work at) gets crazy; there are days when I feel like a juggler. No breaks, or maybe just one; Bed alarms, IV pumps beeping, call lights going off, an etoh withdrawal that you need to assess and medicate every hour, families wanting an update; some others are hysterical, because you didn't bring that pudding (or the dose of IV dilaudid) they ordered 5 minutes ago. In the meantime you have an admission and a discharge all happening at the same time! When you reflect back on your days, it's actually kind of funny, but rewarding, because somehow you got everything done. (Or passed on to the following shift) but don't let that scare you, because you will become a nurse that is wanted in many other areas of nursing. Think of med-surg as "nursing bootcamp" I've spent my last three years in med-surg, and even though there were days that I hated it, there were others were I felt like my job was the most exciting job in the planet! My cycle in med-surg has ended; I'm moving on to doing different things, but good luck to you! Can't wait to hear about your adventures in med-surg!!
