    Quote from danibanani
    definitely nicu or peds in general. i also have a graduate of the nicu who is 6 years old. he has quad. cp, but his spirit is one of a ufc fighter!

    i can't tell you how many people ask my if i'm going into peds because of my daughter (cp, feeding tube). nope. i've wanted to do this way before she came around. my mom worked nicu in a bad area so many of the babies were drug addicted and left behind. i know that's where i want to be. the only question i've ever had is nicu (don't want regular nursery since i don't believe babies belong in nurseries) or peds. if i go peds i'm considering hospice or oncology but that idea may change. the plan for nicu or peds...won't ever change....i wanted that before i had kids.

    I just finished my first year, and now I am working in the ICU as a NCP. I originally wanted CRNA, and am still considering, but NP is appealing to me also. All I am sure about is that I want to work for about a year in the ICU when I grad. in May 09' and then got back MSN! I am really excited to experience all the different areas in the rest of my clinicals though. Who knows I might change my mind!

    I'm not sure what I want to do when I graduate. I volunteer in the ED and really like it. Long term I want to get my NP or CNS and a MPH and do community nursing/health education. I think focusing on HIV and infectious disease (I loved micro). Who knows, maybe don a spacesuit for the CDC one day! This can all change of course, there are so many options! (Don't worry, I will never be your competition for peds or nicu :wink2:, not a kid person)

    I just got an externship in an ICU and that's where I really want to be. I graduate in December and hopefully they'll hire me there as an RN. I, too, plan to go for CCRN. Along with MSN I love all of the possibilities with nursing!

    As an end result I want to be a Nurse Practitioner in a family practice. While I am working on my BSN and MSN I would like to work ICU.
