    I want to work med/surg for the experience while I am completing my BSN-then move into critical care with the ultimate goal being a nephrology/transplant nurse or PICU (if they take LPN's where I am)

    I want to do either OR, ED (at level 1 trauma center), or ICU nursing. My ultimate goal is to become a CRNA in the next 8-10 years. I like the idea of working in a Med/Surg. area right out of nursing school for the extra experience, but I don't know if I will be up to that. I don't know ,will see, might change my mind.

    When in LPN school, I was facinated with geriatrics, and still am in a way, but I am ready to move on to something else for awhile now....I'm leaning toward Med-Surg and possibly OR.
    I would like to find something else to occupy my time while I am in school, something to offer a bit more of a challenge.
    I'd like to work in a big hospital like IU, but can't find the time to get down there!
    Guess I'm keeping my options open..I'll find something I like soon, I'm sure!

    Quote from mom2three
    I'm interested in this discussion.... I have a question...

    Upon entering Nursing school, did you all have an interest towards a specific field? And, did the experience of clinicals totally change your mind and gravitate you towards another? In other words, where did you have your mind set to where you wanted to be, but where did you/or do you think you'll end up??
    I always believed I would work in CV because my family has a history of heart disease, so I have always been interested. However... this summer my clinical rotation introduced me to the Neuro Trauma ICU, and I loved it! Now, I am about to begin my Pedi rotation, and then OB will be next. So... who knows? I might change my mind again. But one thing is for certain... I want to work in critical care. But even within that realm, there are so many options!

    All things going well, I'd like to work as a research nurse, a nurse epidemiologist, or in the field of public health.

    I'm hoping for an ER position because I have been volunteering in one for the last 14 months and love the chaotic environment. Something new everyday so the work doesn't get too boring.

    labor & delivery

    my whole reason for wanting to be a nurse started with the birth of my son. i just finished up ob this summer and i loved l&d! (even though my clinical instructor put me through h*ll--- she didn't break my spirit!)

    i want to work med-surg for at least a year though to get the experience. i start med-surg in about a month so that thought may change.
