My experience: 2 years nursing home, 2 years medsurg, 1 year outpatient hemodialysis.

I started the Hemodialysis job because of the location and work life balance. However, I'm feeling like I can't do this forever. In my heart of hearts, I really feel like I would enjoy wound care. I was the Skin Care Champion under the direction of the hospital's Wound Care Nurse during my time in the hospital. I really enjoyed my experience.

Did I shoot myself in the foot by leaving the hospital where I was gaining experience in wound care?

Can I just get certification online? Does that include clinical hours? Can I reach out to a wound care nurse at a hospital near me to precept?

How available are wound care nurse jobs?
