Hi, I am a nursing student who has just finished the Geriatrics Rotation and is going into the M/S, Peds and Ob/Gyn rotation in the fall. My concern is this....I started having serious doubts about nursing after Geriatrics. My instructors say that we get a lot more challenging as we go along but I am not certain at all that I want to do bedside nursing at all now. The hours and all the stressed out nurses who are treated badly and can't give the patient care they want to. Has anyone gone and gotten their RN and then went to work for a Pharmaceutical company or an HMO, something like that? I got really burned out on Geriatrics and am not sure I'll be able to take all the physical exertion and emotional demands of nursing. I would like to get into teachingand education, just don't see much opportunity in the hospital. Some advice, please?
