I am in shelby county..went to school at Central Alabama in Childersburg. I graduated in December and took boards the beginning of February. I will be working at Brookwood in Birmingham, in an 8 bed MICU. I think it took longer for me personally because i was stubborn. I really wanted ICU, really at this hospital, and although i applied else where and interviewed elsewhere i was not very enthusiastic about it. I got the call to go into this interview, and reaaly gave it my all because it is what i really want. I will do 6 weeks orientation on days, then 6 weeks (at least) on nights.
