Some people in my class went straight into research, some into long term care, some at doctors office. Best thing for you is to probably shadow a nurse at a local hospital. Many have programs like that. Or you could volunteer and get an idea of where you'd like to be. There is no law that says you have to do hospital nursing and why put yourself in that position if its not for you.
