    It really does just depend where your interests lie. If your not sure adult nursing leaves things more open, what type of people do you want to look after?

    See this is whats making it hard. I am interested in both. and will hopefully do a postgrad after my degree. Im think should i go for adult nursing then specialise in mental health or should i do the mental health and do a post grad for adult. Im really unsure. Then im scared if i do mental health that i wont enjoy it wheras i sort of know what adult involves as i am currently workin in that area. I have a relative that is currently suffering from schizophrenia but theres so much othe issues in mental health.

    Hello.

    This is a slightly strange first post but i guess i feel more comfortable offering advice than introducing myself and all that jazz. 'Adult nursing v mental health nursing' caught my eye straight away and brought me to you and i'll try to offer some advice.

    You say you currently work in this field, in what capacity and what drew you specifically to that job? Just to ease your worries a little, a career path can't be mapped out perfectly, avoid creating master plans than have to be pursued exactly with no compromise. A career in this field of work is so rich and varied you will find what fits you best as you develop and mature through your adult life. Look at me, i'm 29, studied Physiotherapy at 20 for three years, worked in numerous jobs within education and health care and i find myself applying to do an undergraduate course in mental health nursing in 2013! Who knows where you will end up?

    I think whatever decision you make, you will not be held back in any way. The different areas of nursing hold all the same core values/beliefs and the skills are 100% transferable. You talk of a relative with a mental health condition, why mention it? To me that suggests it may have sparked an interest and curiosity to explore this field in its entirety spanning across the ages of 0-100+ (Remember i'm a bit biased and will try and recruit you to the dark side. haha )

    More to the point, you have 2 offers! Congratulations! Revel in the fact you get to decide, some poor people have 5 rejections to deal with and that can't be fun. Whatever you do decide won't be wrong or right, it will be the next step.

    Hope that helped a little
