Hey guys! (: I'm finishing up my pre-req's before I start my nursing courses. I am going to be a 5th generation nurse, so it's the only thing I have ever wanted to be! No confusion there... Just confused on what I want to specialize in. I have always wanted to work in the Emergency Room. (Both my parents were EMT's, that's where they met!) Years ago, I wanted to specialize in burn surgery. Then I got married at the young age of 17 and was shipped over seas as a military wife to the UK! Needless to say, my nursing career was put on hold. For the next two years I debated burn surgery or neonatal as my specialty I was stuck on becoming a neonatal nurse for some time. Well almost four years later.. After doing my pre-req's and taking all my psych classes, I am now stuck on neuroscience. I am very interested in it, and was super excited when I found it listed as a catergory on here!
So my questions to you wonderful nurses... What is like to be a neuronurse? How did you specialize? How long did it take? What was it like at first on the floor?
Any and all advice/information would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you all <3 (:
