Myself I have worked on a telemetry floor ( for cardiac patients), in the emergency room, on an ambulance as a critical care transport nurse, in a procedure unit ( cardiac catheterization lab) and then I decided to go back to school and become a nurse Practitioner.
I have friends who have also worked in doctors offices, school nursing, telephone nursing, and employee health nursing, travel nurses, and even working with industry partners in research and development. Most nursing schools train you in a hospital because that is where you get exposure to the most procedures and medicines, but it may not be the right fit for you or you lifestyle, so dont give up on nursing just look around.
