if you know you want to work in the OR, I see no problem with entering the specialty after you graduate. I think many people still subscribe to the belief that it is very important to put in 2 years of experience in medsurg. but if you know what you want I see no reason why you shouldnt pursue it right away!

I have been a nurse for 2 years. I went through a great training program, but the newness has worn off and work is becoming the grind I always knew it would be. some days are more fulfilling than others, and I appreciate that my schedule (3 12's) allows for lots of time outside of work to find fulfillment in other areas.
