Thanks so much for your reply!
Anesthesia- that is an option I had not really considered. And I could definatly work with this in plastics.
Are you currently in grad school for this?
This may be a stupid question- but what exactly would this entail?
Do you work along with an anesthesiologist?
I am guessing you would be monitoring the patients vital signs throughout- would you also administer the anesthesia?
What setting are you planning on working in with this?
In terms of schooling- I have been looking into accelerated BSA programs- since I already have a Bachelors in another field. Is this what you would suggest for someone without a nursing background? From what I understand-this way I will be able apply some of the credits I have for basic coursework towards my nursing degree.
Thanks for taking the time to respond. This is a new path for me- and it really helps when people like you take the time to help point me in the right direction!
Looking forward to hearing from you soon!

Specialization occurs after you graduate from (undergraduate) nursing school. You can get a job in plastics once you obtain licensure. However, should you decide to go to grad school, there will be many specialties to choose from. With your surgical interests, one graduate specialty that you may be interested in pursuing is nurse anesthesia. That is the specialty I have chosen to study. Let me know if I can be of further assistance.
