I am currently working in an adult Telemetry unit (days) and have done a lot of thinking about what I want out of life and nursing and truly want to become a school nurse. I am in the process of finishing my bachelors degree and I am working on obtaining the experience necessary to become a school nurse. I have an interview for a postpartum unit (nights), but I am unsure if this is a route that would be worth taking. (I still need 1 1/2 years of acute care experience, I have 6 months on the tele unit I am on and 4 months of experience as a RN weekend supervisor for a Rehab facility) I am wondering if a Pediatric ER would be better suited for my long term goals. I used to work in education as a Teacher's Assistant and had originally intended to become a teacher before changing career choices. I always intended to work with children in a school setting. Does anyone have any advice for me? Thank you
