1. Ok, so I was wandering through our lovely states forum, and I couldnt find an intro page.... So............... thought Id make one!

    I have been a nurse for almost 12 yrs, currently work in CCU in a Birmingham hospital. I have 2 boys, 17 and 14 who are all boy...

    I have worked in OR, Home Health and ICUs. Started out as an LPN, ADN, BSN. I completed my LPN and ADN at CACC in Childersburg, my BSN at JSU, and working on my MSN at UAB.

    I am also you Moderator for the Alabama Forum, so if you have any questions that I can help you with feel free to PM me. I'd like to see this forum very active!!

    So where are all the Bama folks at??????

    I'm definitely a Bama person. I'm about to graduate (May) from UA's Capstone College of Nurisng with my BSN. I've interviewed on various units at a local Tuscaloosa hospital. Due to me already being employed as a student PCA/US at the hospital, I had an inside edge and will be able to obtain a day shift position. It's just a matter of choosing which unit is the best for me.

    Besides finishing nursing school and getting a RN job, I am a single parent to a 3 yr old boy. He's a typical 3 yr old boy, always on the go, never tired, and growing up too fast.

    Wait til your son is about to turn 17 in 2 wks. He walks by me and I can still see the little boy running through the house with nothing but a towel singing Ray Stevens song "They call me the streak" yelling "Are ya naked??"

    HI there my fellow classmate!! Its going well, just surprised that this semester is almost over. It seems like yesterday that I started in the program and now Im 1 yr into it. Time flies. I too will grad May 2008. Its hard to work full time and read 13 chapters a wk, plus the videos in Pharm, but it will be worth it.
