Rating:
(votes: 0)


For nursing students: Once you become a Nurse, which field of nursing would you want to work in??

For nurses: What do you feel is the best and worst place to work in as a nurse... and why?

I'll start it off... When I pass the boards and become a nurse I'd like to work in the I.C.U., Peds, O.R. and maybe E.R.
i debated community nursing and theatres (OR) and went for theatres in the end. i qualified in december and started work there in january and i love it.debbie

I would like to go into OB then to NICU, but I am very open to working telemetry-which is were I precepting at. I graduate June 25

Comment:
Best place--OB-hands down! Why? Really, are people ever going to stop making babies? Ever? Our business is booming! And seeing a family greet their newborn is the greatest thing in the world...:spin: Sometimes it is also the worst place for obvious reasons, but I love it! For me the worst place was LTC, but that is just me. I did mostly administrative stuff so it was hard to feel like a nurse....

Comment:
I have a list of possibilities that I realize may change once I've done clinical rotations. These are in no particular order:MedSurgOBORERPsychICUNICUPedsI am almost certain that I do not want to work in geriatrics. I volunteer on a geriatric unit. I love those patients, but it is just so sad up there. Perhaps when I'm older I'll feel differently about it.And once I have the master's (which is a looong way off right now):FNPCNM

Comment:
I am graduating in August and i've had some experience in several diff. areas and IMO OB would be the WORST place to work...i cant even stand to listen to the lectures! BUT my real passion is pediatrics and possibly the NICU. I also know that id never work in LTC or hospice.

Comment:
The place I am excited to work in right now is the Ortho/Neuro unit where I have been offered a position. The worst place I can think of is Psych, then Peds. Eventually, I would like to be a NP.

Comment:
Upon graduation, I would like to work in the ER or PEDS. I want to get my Masters and eventually be DON somewhere. That is my goal.

Comment:
The worst place (besides LTC) was a ped ER for me. Loved the kids, not the staff and parents so much though.The best place is IV therapy. Work M-Fr no weekends, holidays or nights. I am the only one who does my job (job security). Can't complain. Great opportunity.

Comment:
Easy choice for me: ER - been doing it 10 years and still lovin' it! However, I'm graduating with a CNS (clinical nurse specialist) in May and am unsure where I'll end up. Did I say I love the ER??
