    Hi,
    I am from Tallassee, AL. Have you ever heard of this place? I have been a nurse since 1995. I was a LPN for 10 years and then graduated from Troy University with my ASN in Dec. 2005. RN school was hard but I learned alot. Keep up the good work, all you nursing students and you will reap the rewards. I have worked all over our little hospital. (ICU, ER, OR, GI Lab, Social Services, Gero-Psych,...). I love being a nurse.
    I am married with 2 children of my own and 2 step children. We have 3 boys and 1 girl, (30, 25, 24, & 17) and 1 grandson (6).
    Hi dkw, I'm right up the road in Opelika. Aren't grandkids the best!!:spin:

    Hey there everyone!
    My name is Laura and I currently live in Central Florida with my 6 year old twin boys. I am an LPN and am looking to move on to RN, I may also be moving to Alabama this summer, but want to know a little bit more about the schools and jobs there. Are there any LPN to RN programs in or near Andalusia, Alabama? Can anyone provide me any info? Also what is the rate per hour for an LPN there? I tried calling the Board of Nursing but left voice mails and no one ever returned my call,any help would be appreciated.
    Thanks and blessings to all,
    Laura

    Hi there! I'm Sandi and am currently in the ADN program at CACC. I'm just in my second semester so not quite where you are. Whew, that second semester they throw you right in there don't they??!!! Just started last week and already have clinicals starting this Wednesday. These are on the Transitional Care Unit so I don't have a clue as to what to expect. Anyway, nice to meet you, maybe I will run into you at school some time. Good luck in your last semester!!!

    Hey Sandi, Im also in my last semester. They never waste time. One of our groups had clinicals last wednesday. Id much rather have them early in the semester and get finished before finals. I have 9 next month. We only have 12 this semester. But Im ok with that. I wont be doing clinicals up until the day before finals this time!Good luck with everything, if ya need any help let me know. Are you taking 105 and 106? Nice to meet you as well.

    Yep, taking 105 and 106. They say that the worst part is the Fluids, Electrolytes and Acid Based Balances test. The instructor gave us a break this semester and didn't start with that, we are starting with module C instead of A. Wish I only had that many clinicals! We have 12 for 106 and 6 for 105 so we have 18 all together!!! And they wonder why so many fail out of the course!!! How are we suppose to have time to study??? I also have my first test this Thursday!! Argggggg! I'm stressing already! LOL!

    please do not post names of instructors, individuals. we try and protect one's identity here on the world wide web. per [font='comic sans ms']terms of service (tos):


    please do not give out personal information about others. do not name names where anyone could identify the person in any facility including your nursing programs.
    thank you.

    When we did F and E it was taught the first day of class and was the last module test of the semester....go figure.... 12 clinicals arent bad, but i also have 150 hours of precptorship to do. which is 12.5 days. Itll be ok though,Im doing 8 of those this month, and Ill finish the rest in March. Anyway, gotta go remember how to work all these dosage problems for the test! oh , about the test and clinicals, time management, you'll learn how to get it all done.
