I'm in a position to start a RN/BSN program next month. I've got all the prereqs from a previous B.S. degree and have spent most of my working years as a police officer, and I'm still in law enforcement. I've also worked off and on, in a part-time basis, as a paramedic. That said, I've been exposed to nurses in a wide variety of work setting particularly back in medic school. I'm interested in being an emergency nurse, but I can't envision myself working in another area. Would you think based on the above work history that I would be hired as a nurse in the emergency department? I realize it's putting the cart before the horse, but I'd hate to finish and be pushed into a rehab position or something (no offense to anyone) just because I'm the new guy. I've been a supervisor (have hired and fired) and know what I'd do in the above situation, but I don't know if hospital supervisors necessarily think the same way I do.
