new to nursing and rehab

  1. Hey to all. I just graduated in may and started working at a university hospital. We have a good size rehabilitation department but i'm not sure it's the perfect fit for me. I'm doing an internship which lasts 4 months and will then need to make up my mind about the job. I really enjoyed my med-surg rotations and took the internship originally for a gi/renal/pulmonary unit but had to switch because they didn't have any preceptors for me. How long should i give it to really know if it's a good fit for me. I've been doing it for 2 weeks. Thanks for your help.

    hmm... welcome to the wild and wooley realm of nursing...
    I'd say take the 4 months.... but, sometimes you'll know in about 4 hours.... but,.... you're still new, so its going to be overwhelming... you'll do well...

    Rehab is not for everyone, but, thats why nursing is a beautiful thing...you can bounce around until someting fits...

    good luck
