    What type of nursing do you want to specialize in?

    I would like to do Pediatrics, probably in a doctor's office.

    "No! I don't wanna get a shot! I don't wanna get a shot!"

    How about you?

    I want to be an acute care pediatric nurse ( possible even NNP) or cardiothoracic nurse. As long as I am working in an ICU I would be happy.

    I'm not sure. I like kids a lot, so I'm leaning toward pediatrics. I've also always been fascinated by the process of pregnancy and birth, so I'd like working in obstetrics too, although I know to be a nurse midwife you need a master's, soon to be a PhD.

    I will probably always live in a small town so I'm not sure how much opportunity to specialize there will actually be.

    Really love my rotation at NICU as well as L&D. I'm somewhat torn between the two. But my ultimate goal is a nurse practitioner.

    I would love to work in NICU or pediatric CICU. Both are very hard areas to get into. Another possibility is an infusion nurse. I will just see where my schooling leads me

    It is not true that CNM (Certified Nurse-Midwife) will soon need a PhD. ACNM does NOT support the change and they have released several notices on their stance that they feel a masters degree is sufficient for entry-level midwifery. Just an FYI.

    I'm on the path to CNM, so I pay close attention to this. ;-)
