I don't know what I want to be when I grow up.

  1. hi everyone!

    i don't know what i want to do when i graduate. i used to have my heart set on certain specialty fields; however, the more i'm exposed to, the more i wonder.

    i know this sounds silly, but i really enjoy med-surg. i don't care for the physician/nurse relationships on med-surg though. i love the elderly and pediatrics both. however, i don't want to "trap" myself into med-surg.

    i'm not an adrenaline junkie by any means, but i really enjoyed the icu (hated the er).

    do any of you feel like this? i'm 5 months from graduating and i have to have my mind made up in a few months when i begin to apply for jobs.

    thank you,

    Dani - I could have written your post myself, LOL! I am also 5 months from graduation and I go back and forth a lot too. I tell myself I am going to have to decide something soon as I need to start applying for jobs! I have it narrowed down between 3 different areas, and I think I will just go with whichever one I get a job in...that would make me believe that is where God wants me to be. I see a lot of classmates who are sure of where they will be working, and then I see many like us. I don't think we're as alone and out of control as we feel.

    PM me if you ever wanna talk, I definitely know how you are feeling. Good luck!!
