    Specialty areas

    Most places ask for some experience I thought? At least that is what I see on postings. What is your specialty are and where do they post the positions? I find them difficult to find. Thanks

    Specialty areas

    I am a new nurse. AD in Nursing. Previous BA in Art, Masters in Ed. I am currently working at a small community hospital while I work on my BSN. At what point can you venture out into a specialty area? I have been working for 5 months, I need more experience I know, but ultimately I think I would like to work at an outpatient surgical center. Most likely for pediatrics. Right now the hospital I'm at I'm doing Med Surg. Any advice on how to go about getting where I want to be would be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks

    Accepted to 2 year nursing school and pregnant

    Thanks for all the support! I still plan on starting in Sept. I know it will be no walk in the park, but I think I can do it. I'll have the baby in June, so being pregnant won't be an issue once I begin... I'll just be dealing with little sleep and new baby issues. Thanks again for all your support!:)

    Thanks for the quick response. I am looking for a job that I love... I liked teaching, but never loved it. Lots to think about still. I have a while until I need to completely decide, but I appreciate your honesty about the job market. I am hoping this next move is out last. Anyway, I guess I was hoping the job market would eventually open up, but how are you supposed to get experience if they won't hire you? Thanks again... back to my pros and cons list.
  5. Hi, this is my first post. I have looked at other posts, but they all seem to be very old... 2009 or earlier. Anyway, here is my situation. I was accepted into the Barnes Jewish Nursing program in St Louis. I was originally accepted into the accelerated program, but decided that wasn't going to work with a newborn at all. Anyway, I am due June 21st and classes would start Sept 15. So... I would be a new mom and starting nursing school too. I know this is my decision and I want to do what is best for my child. I am 33 and really don't want to put off school any longer. I already have a teaching degree, but can not find a job. My husband was in the military and so we traveled a lot... We will be moving again within the next 3-5 years. Teachers don't get hired very easily when you move around a lot. Ok, so I guess what I'm looking for is some advice. Has anyone gone to nursing school with a newborn at home or am I completely nuts for even considering this? Thanks
