Honors in the major?

  1. My nursing school is really pushing this honors in the major program where you write a huge research paper. They're making it sound like it's pivotal to do this if you want to go to grad school. I loathe researching with a passion, but if this means the difference between an extra year of working, I might consider it.

    What do you guys think?

    Thanks,

    You've got to do what makes you happy. Having that on your record will look good but it's not worth it if you are miserable doing it. Good luck!

    I was thinking it'd be more valuable to just work as a clinical tech instead of doing all of this research, that way I actually get some exposure to the ICU.

    I worked as a nurse tech in the ICU at a Level II trauma center during nursing school & it was great experience. As soon as I graduated I was hired into the unit without even going through a internship because they had taught me all along what they wanted me to know...they just molded me the way they wanted me. It was great too. By the time I graduated nursing school I already had great experience putting in IV's, drawing blood, inserting NGT's and foleys, drawing ABG's, etc. I highly recommend it.
