Should I return to inpatient


I just started my ACNP program this fall. I am currently working in a day surgery--telemetry unit. Post cath, AVF, gen changes, post ablations, etc. I have worked ICU, PACU, and a regular day surgery unit. I was wondering if it would be better if I return to inpatient or if I will still be marketable if I stay in my current unit. At this point I think I may want to specialized in cardiology but still unsure. Thanks in advance.

I think that if this is working well for you schedule-wise to stay there for a while longer As you get farther into your program you may realize (or you may not either) that something else has piqued your interest. No sense in adding to the stress of starting school with the stress of a new job IMHO.
