I am currently an RPN/LPN and am in my 3rd year BScN program.
I am lost on picking my preceptorship placement. This is the placement that will make you or break you.
I've always wanted to be an L & D nurse or an NICU nurse. I have started early and have been taking courses (that are very expensive) like neonatal resuscitation and fetal heart monitoring to help me get my placement.
I am currently on a medicine floor and have realized that I didn't know as much as I thought I knew as an RPN.
My dilemma is this...
Do I go into a basic medicine placement to get the skills I need and than attempt to get into the speciality I want or do I do for L & D or NICU.
My fear is that if I get NICU, no one will hire me later because I only have neonate experience.
