I'm a student in my last semester of an Accelerated BSN and I've been vacillating on where I want to go on and apply to from here. I would love some advice on thoughts of being able to switch specialties. I have an extreme interest in Labor & Delivery, and the hospital I intend to apply to allows new students to go right into L&D after orientation. It was the area I was most drawn to, excelled in, and felt the most comfortable in, maybe because I've been through the labor process twice. I also have a strong interest in the ED, I find it fascinating and exciting and equally rewarding, but as a student I find it very overwhelming and not sure if I can hack it. The fellowship also intimidates me, I'm just not as comfortable in those departments as I was in L&D. I'd like to try my hand at L&D and get comfortable nursing first, but is it very difficult to switch out of that kind of specialty? What if I decide L&D is not for me? Am I pigeonholing myself by starting in a specialty? I've had so many mixed answers. Thank you for any and all advice!!
