Is it difficult to move from L&D to MedSurg?

Posted

I'm a nursing student getting close to graduation and the time to apply for jobs and interview is near. I always wanted to do trauma nursing, but once I did my clinical rotation in L&D, I fell in love! Now I'm torn. If I go where I want to go now - L&D - and later I decide to move on, will it be challenging to move on to a new specialty? I'm completely OK with needing to do MedSurg for a year or two before moving onto other specialties, but will that be an issue to go from L&D to MedSurg? L&D is so specialized, I'm worried I might make myself hard to employ by not utilizing certain skills or working with certain patient populations. Thank you for any advice!
