I just discovered the allnurses website yesterday, and am hoping to find some advice and/or suggestions from an experienced nurse. I posted this in the greetings/new poster forum- but thought I would post here as well since this is a little more applicable.
I have my bachelors in hearing and speech sciences and am 25 yrs old.
As of right now I have not even begun nursing school- so I am pretty new to all of this- and would GREATLY appreciate and feedback!!
I am working in marketing right now- but do not find it fulfilling enough and keep coming back to medicine. I have always been interested in medicine- but have just recently decided to start over with a new career. I wish I had had done this sooner - but better late then never right?
My current job is all right- but the office/business world is not for me. I have always had an interest in science and medicine and enjoy working with people. I think the fact that I just had surgery last week has helped to spur my interest even further.
I am particularly interested in plastic/cosmetic surgery, but have not been able to find much information on the internet with regard to this specialty in terms of nursing.
Is there anyone out there who specializes in this area? Is this something that I would specialize in during school? Any insight on your daily routine on the job would be very helpful. Are you even able to specialize in this specifically?
I am very excited to hear from you all!
I would really appreciate any advice and or direction you could provide.
Thanks so much for taking the time to read my post.
You all are a great source of information as well as support!
