Hello all! I am new to the forum. I was hoping to get opinions and thoughts on being and RN for either a hospital~birthing floor~ or a doctor's office. (The doctor's office either being a birth and family office or a women's care office) I just started the nursing program so I have awhile, but I just got to thinking about it and wanted some input from others. The things that come to mind for me would be is there a big pay differnece, would the hours be more apealing in a doctor's office instead of being the low man on the totem pole in a hospital setting, etc... So I would love some input from everyone. What would be your thoughts which one you prefer what are your opinons on both ~good and bad~. I know there are things I have not even thought about yet! I work in a local, small hospital and I do a lot of work on the birthing floor. I see our RN's and everyone on the floor that work together to treat the patients, and when I see mothers laboring I wish I could rush right in there and be apart of it. So I know I will love working around pregnancy and (or) laboring. I also might be able to determine once I do the clinicals at the hospital for the birthing unit. Me just being curious and wondering what everyone's thoughts were on working in both settings? Thank you very much!
( I hope this made sense..)
