    What do you guys think about a new grad going into a specialty area as a first job? I have an opportunity to go into urology, but wondering if I should go into primary care for a couple years just to get a good foundation. This job kind of just fell into my lap, another one may be hard to find! Any advice????

    I have been a nurse in for 26 years and worked in a variety of different areas of nursing. I started out by working in a small hospital where you did everything as an RN. This to me was the best thing I did for my career, because I was able to "perfect" what I had learned in nursing school. I was able to do a little of every "skill". My daughter starts nursing school in the fall and I am going to encourage her to do some primary care initially because it gives her an increased knowledge base. Good luck with whatever you decide to do.
