What is your favorite specialty and why?


:nurse:Just curious as to see what are people favorite specailty area is on this board.

I personally love geriatrics and correctional nursing. Geriatric is my number one because it seem that SOME people forget about them when it comes to nursing, as MOST-not all, are interested in acute care nursing. Also, I like correctional nursing becasue I have seen some health care professinals treat people in jail/prison wrong because they are in jail/prison, which is unfair in my eyes. Just looking to hear you guys favorite specialty and why?

Specializes in ER.

I love ER. I thrive on fast pace and the adrenaline rush I get treating patients with MI, stroke, DKA or substance abuse OD.

Specializes in Mental Health, Medical Research, Periop.

Psych. SIKE!!! no jk, really- I love Psych. I think it's fascinating because the mind is so complex. It saddens me that mental disorders may not be easily recognized and often are dismissed because of it. I love to practice the medical and non-medical approaches taken in this field. I hope to see advancement in the future for mental diseases, especially schizophrenia.
