that you ended up in?
Did you always know that it was what you wanted to do, did you just have an epiphany in clinical or was it just by chance of what was offered? or, some other reason?
I'm trying to figure out in which area i want to do my Transition, and i feel so torn. i loved L&D/post-partum/nursery and could see wanting to pursue women's health as a nurse practioner... so i had thought that i made up my mind, but part of me feels that eventhough i'd be happy, i'd still feel like i'd be missing out on something- I guess because the initial thing that drew me to nursing was that i wanted to help 'sick' people. I liked peds, so that's a consideration, but i worry that it might affect me harder when i have kids. I just finished up my rounds on a Tele floor, and actually liked it alot more than i thought i would, though it's not something that i could see myself doing for too long (its split b/w med/surg and tele and we were there for our Geri rotation). I Loved the PICU, but wonder if i would like ICU better. i loved being able to really focus in on those few patients, but i know that most people would suggest gaining some experience first before going to the ICU, and that makes sense to me.
So i guess i was just curious how everyone ended up where they are... and how they picked that area... any tips for figuring it out?
I still have a year before graduation, but i'll need to choose where i want to do my transition (90 extra clinical hours in your area of interest) soon, and i want to choose the area that i will most likely be going into, so that i can gain as much experience and make it as valuable as possible.
