I am volunteering at a special education class in an elementary school. I seriously adore these kids (autism, learning disorders, mostly due to brain damage). That is why I am still considering applying for a teacher credential program. However have been interested nursing for quite some time and have half of my prereqs done for a BSN or entry level masters program.
I realized that I could work with these kids in a hospital/clinic setting as well, especially in advance nursing. I want to get some experience and shadow an RN and/or NP in that field, but I don't know which division to contact. Pediatrics? Neurology?
Can anyone give me any advice or share your experiences in this area?
I am especially leaning towards nursing because I feel like it is a better career choice/path as far as salary, job outlook, advancement in position, etc. Maybe I'm wrong...
