    I loved the ICU and dare I even say our Med/Surg rotation. I never thought I would be a med/surg nurse but I loved the variety. I work as a nurse intern on a cardiac/tele unit and I like that ok but it is the same thing day in and day out that is the only thing holding me back there. Wounds seems to be what interests me most, I love the burn unit but that isn't an option around here just yet, I have a loan keeping me in a certain hospital group for 2 years. I think I just sound more confused than ever now....LOL HELP ME!!!!!

    Still confused....hehehe

    I'd do med/surg too. If the variety starts to wane after a couple years, look for a transfer elsewhere.

    I too wanted to do my capstone at the ER or ICU but I had to chose Med/Surg. So next month I will be in the MED/SURG.

    I just wish I was drawn somewhere, so many just KNOW what they want. I liked the ICU but I want to more patient interaction. I love changing dressing and seeing how wounds heal I guess that I why I am thinking med/surg. I just never thought of myself as a med/surg nurse. My other concern is the nursing staff at one of the hospitals I could do med/surg at....they leave a lot to be desired to say the least. I think maybe that is what is holding me back on that choice. The other hospitals are smaller and I think won't keep my interest but the nurses on the unit I would like to go to are terrible, hateful and down right mean. I don't want to experience something I think I could like and end up hating it because of the people.

    I guess more comes out the more I think about it and talk about it. Now I guess I know the root of my dilemma so now what to do about it....hhhmmmmm

    Thanks everyone for listening to me vent!!!
