Hi There Everyone,
I am a young nurse from Boston, MA. I have my BSN-RN and have been working in an outpatient primary care setting (Adult/Peds/Some UC). We do meds, nebs, immunizations, wound care, INR reporting, med recs/refills, pt teaching etc. We get our occasional CP patient in UC who we give Oxygen, ASA, call 911 and send them off. I really do like the office job, nice hours, focusing on one patient at a time, and the adminstration side of work. However, the pay is not what other nurses are making in the area and I am interesting in trying to save some extra money and buy a home. I know with this economy it is great that I even have a job. My question is.. what to do next! I have not done any med-surg and would much rather not. I never really like much of the floor when I was in nursing school. I was wondering what my chances would be of maybe getting into a private clinic (cardio/onc, endo/gi), L&D, maybe dialysis? I would really love feedback. Also, can anyone suggest a type of floor that may not be the nightmare that you typically hear when you think "med-surg". For all you med-surg nurses out there, I give you more credit than anyone! I know that I could not do it for years! Any help or advice would be great! Thank you!
