Personality Test for Specialty

  1. 5 Here is a personality test to see which area of nursing you may fit in with the best. It is 130 questions but it goes pretty quickly. They will ask you the same question multiple times which is normal.

    My top three were rheumatology, general internal med, and hematology.

    That was pretty cool. Although I want to specialize in pediatric oncology...my top three from this test were:
    1. Physical Med and Rehabilitation
    2. Occupational Med
    3. Pathology

    Oncology ended up being 9th and 11th. Thanks for the link. That was fun.

    Good one. I cant really see me doing any of the ones it posted top for me. There is no way I would think about plastic surgery.

    1) Neurology
    2) Psychiatry

    It's almost spooky. Those were what I was thinking about doing before I took the survey. Hospice too, but obviously that's not a specialty with this survey. Funny...I was thinking of doing those two.

    My top 5 were:

    1. radiology
    2. phys med & rehab
    3. med oncology
    4. pediatrics
    5. preventative medicine


    Not bad, considering my top interests are oncology and school nursing. I have also considered working with diabetes or weight management in some capacity (endocrinology was #10 on my list). However, I eventually plan to be a FNP (preventative medicine), so I guess although this test is geared towards physicians, it still seems pretty accurate overall.

    Neat...thanks for sharing!

    These were my top 3
    1. dermatology
    2. pediatrics
    3. emergency medicine

    Have no clue how dermatology got on there. Never ever considered that. The other 2 fit.
