I have wanted to be a L and D nurse for more years than I can remember but since I have been in nursing school I have gotten more and more undecided. I've found so many interesting areas. I finished my OB clinicals earlier this semester and really enjoyed them. Now I am doing Peds. I swore I would never work in Peds but now I am seriously leaning in that direction. We have to complete a 3 week preceptorship at the end of our spring semester (the last one). I think I will do that in Peds and see how I like it. I already know I like L and D and postpartum. I will most likely end up in either OB or Peds.
I've also considered the OR training program because I thoroughly enjoyed my OR assignment and telemetry is very interesting as well. Told you I get more confused every day lol
When I graduated with a BS in computer information systems, it was "oh dear gosh where are all the jobs?" Now I have so many options I can't decide. It's a thoroughly nice change though.

I'll be an LPN so my jobs are somewhat limited. But I have a very good chance of getting into one of the few hospitals in Connecticut that still hires LPN's. Plan on working there part time while I persue my LPN to RN degree.
Ultimate goal is NICU. Possibly PICU. Hospice is another field I like. Womb to tomb I guess :spin:
