Here's some background information so that you guys can better understand my dilemma:
I'm 20 and will be applying to an adn nursing program
next yer. After I graduate from the 2yr program , I'm not sure if I want to go straight into school nursing right then cause I do like the idea of working in the ER, but am considering it. If I do go into school nursing right then I don't think I'll ever change specialty as I really like that it has a predictable stable schedule and the fact that I'd have summers off, which I would like to use for traveling. I really love to travel! I know i'd have a significant pay cut because it's school nursing but that's ok with me. What I care about is having time to enjoy myself with my hobbies and life. There's so many things I wanna do! If only school was scheduled 4 days a week instead of 5 lol!
**Anyway, my question is this: If I did go into school nursing straight after nursing school is it feasible/realistic to be able to work as a school nurse from now till I'm in my 60's or even 70's if I wanted to? Any school nurses out there who have been able to do this? What are your thoughts experiences? Thanks so much!!
