We are a group of 4 students in our last 8 weeks of a BSN program. It is really coming down to making some decisions about what direction we want to take our nursing careers. So we want to pose a few questions to all of you experienced nurses. We are all ambitious and want to go for it all...Our biggest interests right now are in acute care and we are all considering going into ICU. Our dilemma is that according to most of our instructors and some of our preceptors going straight into ICU would be a fine idea. We have also been asking a lot of people we work with in this area whether they would suggest starting in Med surg or ICU. The replies have varied. We have found that the nurses who started in Med Surg tended to suggest that MS is the best place to start and those who started in other areas have tended to suggest that we do what interests us most. We would love to hear some of your opinions and it would be great to hear what kinds of things you think we should consider when looking at new grad programs in the ICU and in Med Surg. thanks for your time...We are looking forward to your replies.
