I absolutely hate this mentality of people who think one specialty is "better" than another, and in my observation it appears to be a more common phenomenom in new grads from the past 5-ish years or so.
I have worked a lot of different specialties including ICUs, med-surg, ER, and oncology and I don't think a specialty makes someone a better nurse than another. They're all different, they're all hard in their own way, they all require different types of critical thinking and time management.
Often times one specialty might "struggle" if they tried to do another specialty - ICU nurse may have a hard time juggling 6 med-surg patients; med-surg nurse may have a hard time managing an Oncology assignment full of blood products and chemo; Oncology nurse may struggle understanding lab values of a non-onc patient....my point being that they all thrive in their own ways, and not one is better than the other.
Anyone can be a "real hardcore badass nurse" no matter their specialty. You are a new grad though, you aren't hardcore or badass no matter what specialty you're in because you are still learning. Improve your critical thinking skills, increase your understanding of underlying pathophysiology and disease processes, know your patient population like the back of your hand, and then decide that you are bored/aren't "good enough" and try to go somewhere else. Until then, there's a lot to learn.
Also, shout out to the SNF/LTC nurses out there managing 1543 patients at once (okay, slight exaggeration) providing excellent care and always advocating for their residents. They are the true badasses to me.
