1st Job Offer is Psych, Will This Limit Me?

  1. Hi all...

    New grad over here....graduated in May 2012, passed the boards in October 2012, and accepted an offer as an RN on a psychiatric unit in November 2012.

    I was hoping to land a med-surg position and I am wondering if working in a specialty such as psychiatric nursing, would limit me? I have a 24 hour position and would still like to look for a per diem med surg position. I am just really worried that working in Psych would limit the opportunity for me to work in other areas. Is there anything I can do to help build my skills/resume to land a med surg job?
