Hello all over the great state of Alabama to all you nurses and students out there!
I found this site the other day and was so pleased to see there was a place for AL nurses/students to post. It's interesting to read and discuss certain topics that affect us locally and share experiences.
Anyway, my name is Stephanie, I live in the Birmingham area, married mom w/ 2 little boys (6 & 2 yrs old) and am registering for my pre-reqs this fall and would love take the PAX this fall as well and apply to start the nursing program Spring '05. My quick question was really just out of curiosity; did anyone here (or do you now) attend Jeff State? I will be starting there for my AD and plan to move on to UAB, eventually would love to get a MSN but for now am still trying to get my brain back in college mode. LOL I was just wondering if any of you would be at Jeff State with me and how you like(d) it there. My brother is a nurse at UAB in the critical intensive care burn unit; he's been at UAB for about 10 yrs or so now. He started at Jeff State but wound up going to UAB and doing it all at once, getting his BSN.
I've wanted to try nursing since my oldest son was a baby, but something always just got in my way of starting. I've been a SAHM and for the last year did court reporting school (liked it, great career, just not what I felt a passion for doing) and now I am finally going to try nursing school if it's the last thing I do!!!!
Right now I'm a busy mom so I may not be online a lot but I will be checking in on this board and all of you whenever I can. Those of you that are attending CACC in C'burg are near where I went to high school...8 yrs ago, LOL, but still!
Thanks for having me here! It's great to "meet" everyone!
