How to figure out your interest and speciality as a new nurse (RN)
I graduate in May 2022 and I want to work for a year before I go back to school for my masters and I want to use that year in figuring out what I would want to do and what my interests are when considering different specialities etc
Even if you decide before going to college which specialty you would like it is ok to change your mind during nursing school or even years later after you are a nurse. In my research during my studies towards my doctorate and in my career I had the opportunity to speak with nurses who had years of experience and were interested in changing specialties. They were interested in finding a mentor to support them in their specialty change and return to school for another degree or certification.
Nursing is a career where you can change as your interest and passion to help others, the community, and the world change.
Johnson & Johnson (2021) Nursing Specialties
Wolters Kluwer (2018) 22 of the best nursing jobs you can get after your graduate.
(Note: some of the jobs require a Masters and/or Doctorate degree – PhD, EdD, or Doctorate of Nursing Practice. There for after achieving your Bachelors degree you would continue for your next degree(s). And, there are many more than 22 but this is a very small start so you can see a variety of specialties)
