I am currently a pre-nursing student, hoping to start clinicals in the fall.
From the nurses and nursing students I have talked to you specialize once you have your RN and you are working in a hospital. There are so many nursing jobs
available you will probably be able to pick an area you enjoy once you graduate.
Also the way the nursing programs
are set up you learn various areas in your clinical rotations. A semester is usually broken up into areas like med/surg, oncology, peds, labor and delivery, er, or, etc.
From your clinical rotations you will probably really enjoy one area and not really enjoy another area.
Also, once you are working for a hospital your education continues, the hospital will provide you with options to get certified in different specialities or you can take classes outside of the hospital to specialize.
That is what is so great about nursing, there are so many options and interests for everyone! :hatparty:
Good Luck in whatever you decide!
