This may be my first post on allnurses, however I'm not new to the site. I'll be graduating nursing school this May.
Allnurses has been such a tremendous support system. I read posts while applying for schools and during the long wait to get in. When I was freaking out before the start of my first clinical rotation, I would read posts from other students about their first clinical experiences and was reassured that everything was going to be "OK!".
When I had a tough test coming up and I just needed a fresh perspective on the material, I'd more often then not-find it here, on allnurses. When I just needed to laugh, allnurses gave me that too. There is something strangely soothing about reading the fears, joys, accomplishments, and crazy experiences from those who are students like myself & especially from the veteran nurses.
As my experience as a nursing student draws closer to the end, I feel it's important to thank those who've helped me through.
With that, here is a GIANT THANK YOU to all of the posters on allnurses.com!
