Is there any area in rehab nursing where its physically based rehab nursing and not so much bed side care. Thank you. I'm about to graduate with a degree in exercise physiology.

Sounds like PT is what you're looking for (not nursing) ? I could be wrong but... PTA perhaps, if you're not looking to get your doctorate? Can you shadow to get a better feel for it? OT / COTA have a different type of physical involvement with the patient. Most rehab nurses are involved at the bedside with patient care, or in the office or case management, where you don't get that patient involvement.

What about outpatient rehab nursing? My Rehab hospital has an outpatient clinic that has nurses.
