  • You should be able to work in any department. Ask at the nursing school and they should be able to tell you for sure. I do know that you can't go from state to state without getting a license in the new state.

  • any department, but then you can go back and get a higher form that specializes in one field of medicine. and the license is actually done by region, so you pay to take a test, after you grad college w/your degree, and when you pass the test your license is good in that region anywhere from about 2-10 states.
