    Right now I want to work in critical care, but may change my mind when I do clinicals in that area! Just finished Peds, and definately do not want to be a Peds nurse. Will do OB the first Mini-term next I may be swayed that way! I can't wait!

    ICU or CCU, most likely. Also thinking of eventually going for an MSN to become a CRNA.

    I liked oncology. I lucked out I was offered a job on the unit I was a student on for over a year. My second choice was burn unit.

    What? Nobody wants to be an ostomy nurse?


    I got into nursing because I watched too many Baby Stories on TLC and wanted to go into L&D. But after spending a few clinical days in L&D I realized that after one of the babies was born prematurely I found myself wanting to follow the baby to the NICU. I didn't care about the mother, I just kept thinking of the little baby.

    I hope to get into the NICU or *possibly* Peds.

    I am going to the ICU or CCU for however long it takes me to get into CRNA school.

    If that didn't work out...I'll be a "baby catcher"!!

    I hope my mind doesn't change

    Since I worked in RT years ago I think ICU/CCU I would like to specilize in Cardio-Pulmonary Loved NICU years ago but not sure if I could stand the crying. I have always liked ER too and since I worked as a CNA for Hospice for 4 years feel that I could do that for a few years. Wow I guess I just don't know huh


    Heidi so sorry for your loss, you are in my prayers dear !!!!

    I will be graduating in December, and I already have a job for the NICU. I didn't think I would ever want to do NICU, until I shadowed a nurse there and fell in love with those sweet innocent little babies. I am GUNG HO now....can't wait to graduate!! Most hospitals will let you shadow if you ask, then you could try out a few areas. But you are right, clinicals will take you through a little bit of everything, and you will change your mind a bunch before deciding!! Good LUCK!

    I would love to work in Med-Surg, then ER, and then L&D.

    Pediatric Oncology

    I hope I will be able to take it. Whenever those fund rasing stories come on TV and I see those children, I just want to go help them. They have such wonderful attitudes - I don't think I could be half as brave as they are!

    There is a children' hospital here where I am, so after I finish my first semester of clinicals, I think I will try to get a tech job there (similar to a CNA but only nursing students can have this particular job) on the Oncology unit.

    I'm interested in rural nursing...I would like to do a new graduate nurse program in rural New South Wales (Australia) because I am looking to get out of Sydney and I much prefer the rural atmosphere. Theatre nursing or anaesthesia would also be good.
