Looking for a specialty

Nursing Students Pre-Nursing


Specializes in Pschiatry.

I was just accepted into a nursing program. I'm a older than the average student,51. I'm nervous as heck lol. However, after I get my AAS, I want to go into a specialty. I'm leaning towards psych nurse or hospice. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance.

Specializes in L&D, infusion, urology.

You don't have to choose a specialty now. Wait until you go through school and are exposed to different areas to make a final decision, and even then, be open to other areas of nursing. The way the job market is right now, you may have to take what you can get until you can go into your ideal specialty. The more open you are to other areas, the better.

Specializes in CNA.

Yes, wait until you go through clinicals in nursing school. You will be exposed to all areas in hospitals and nursing/hospice homes. That way, you'll see which area you like best and can decide then :-)
