I've been a floor nurse for 1.5 years graduated with my ADN and currently working on my BSN which should be completed within a year and a half. Several times I've considered stopping the BSN track and jumping back into getting my BS in Biology as I only need a couple upper division credits.
The truth is for me personally, and I mean this as non-pretentiously as I can, floor nursing bores
me and I don't find it intellectually challenging at all which is my main desire to change my bachelors to another discipline. I find the whole aspect of getting report, doing a quick assessment (as I'm always pushed for time) and giving meds all day to be tedious and for the most part to be brain dead work. I have only exposure to telemetry and several months of ER time however.
I suppose what I really am asking for is advice; is there a place for something clinically science oriented or research oriented in nursing for me
? I would like to sbe there on the cusp of biomedical research or therapies but I also do enjoy patient interaction.
