Hello all, I am just now getting into nursing school. I am in my 2nd 8 week session of an accelerated BSN program. I am in my 40's and have never worked in any medical setting other than a receptionist years ago at a doctors office. My question is when did you know what area of nursing you wanted to go into? In school? After you began working? Another silly question is how do you go about getting into a specialty area? More schooling or experience? Thank you in advance for any advice or answers.
