You are reading page 2 of Survey: what area of nursing are you thinking of going to or interests you
I was a lay midwife for about 12 years, so I entered the BSN program with the intention of becoming a CNM. That's still my goal, but I must admit that ER has a pull for me too. I will never do pediatric nursing! We will be starting our psychiatric nursing semester in August, and that may also be interesting!
I plan on going into L & D or something related to it mother/baby etc. I'm fascinated by every aspect of birth & know that it will bring something different everyday and will keep me on my toes! Although surgical nursing, is starting to interest me too!
ER !! I have worked at a Level ! Trauma Center for a year and I loved it!1:cool: I worked as an ER Tech and got major practice in phlebotomy, working on trauma alerts, med codes, and I even got my EVOC certificate to drive the ambulance. I'm an LPN but I'm in the RN transition program now. It is brutal! It's only oen year so everything is in 6 week terms. Were in psych now and only 4 people passed the first exam! Thank God I was one of the four. It is too short of a time to do a semester course like psych in 6 weeks!
I had to cut down hours and switch jobs, theER was too physically demanding on a full time student. So I work at a Psych facility as a LPN per-diem. More $$ ,less stress, Psych is also very interesting, I work mainly with adolescents and in the Chemical Dependence unit. I got the experience I needed at the ER as a Tech, I know come clinicals I will run circles around everyone.
Hopefully, I can get an ER preceptorship after graduation.
wanna B an RN
I'd like to go into ER or NICU. My twins were in the NICU for 3 weeks when they were born, and I think it is just amazing and fascinating as for what is now possible. Long term goal is to become a FNP. My own FNP is the person who got me to this point here in life.
I looking at hospice or psych :) Would like to continue my education to become an NP.
