I have been working as a med/surg floor nurse in a hospital for many years and want to try something new. I am considering an acute rehab position available in my facility but wonder what future job opportunities are available to nurses with Rehab experience. I feel that acute rehab is a growing specialty but when I'm tired of working on the floor what other doors will be open? I assume rehab experience is desirable for case management positions anything else?

My first job was in a stroke unit. Later I worked in acute rehab for a few years. Now I work in a telemetry unit. As long as you have a solid med-surg foundation, you can get a job anywhere after rehab. Home health and private duty values rehab experience as well.
