Once you become a Nurse, you have to decide a career direction. Which area of Nursing will you choose? Will you advance your career… if so what will you choose?
Will you pursue OB? Med-Surg? ICU? ER? PACU? OR? Peds??
The list is quite endless. And you have to sort of make up your mind by the time you graduate.
I remember when I was in my diploma Nursing program, I changed my mind three times. And it took me another couple years to truly find my calling.
Then your mind will change a couple more times once you graduate, pass the NCLEX and do this job for a short-time.
If I can offer two pieces of advice regarding which direction to choose:
1. Would you make the same choice if the money was not a concern? Make your choice based on the actual job, not the pay.
2. Have the self-awareness to know what actually will make you happy. Will you be excited to wake up every day to do the job you choose?
