I'm interested in disaster nursing and plan on pursuing a master's or doctorate degree in this area. I know that med-surge skills are necessary for this but after clinicals, I realized working in a hospital/skilled facility is not for me. I loved my public health rotation and I want to be directly involved with the community. I would like a job where I can gain these med surge skills without having to work in a hospital. Does such a job exist? Or should I gain experience working in a hospital before looking into these jobs?
