    I am with Manna, I hope I will figure it out sometime between now and graduation (2 semesters from now!! WOO HOO!). I know I can rule out medsurg; nothing wrong with it, just not for me. I did like day surgery and the PACU (get em up, get em out!). Will do my mother/baby & peds rotations this up coming year, will have to wait and see what I think about that. Also kind of interested in Diabetes Education nurse......need to find out more about education requirements......

    Incidentally, the community college where I'm taking my prereq's requires its ADN students to take Medical Ethics to graduate with the degree. The college I'm looking to transfer to once my prereq's are done to get my 2nd-degree BSN does not require it, though it does offer it as an elective.
