Hi All, I will be graduating with my ADN this fall, and plan to get my BSN right away (I have a BS in an unrelated field, so I only need a few credits). So far, I feel very discouraged about the working conditions in the hospitals, and just don't feel it is for me. There is one area I feel excitement about; that is working with adolescents. It is a population that needs so much guidance about health issues, and so much good can be done to help them create healthy lives for themselves. I feel I have a lot to offer if I could find (or create) an opportunity to teach young people
about and assist with health issues affecting them: depression and suicide, drug use, body issues, eating disorders,
and especially sexual health.
I would also love to work with pregnant teens.
One idea I feel called to do is education about shaken baby syndrome prevention.
Will others please share with me ideas
about where I can do this work, and how to go about it?
