    Hey Everyone!!!
    I'm not in AR yet but tomorrow I will be moving there. So I will introduce myself anyway.

    Miss Priss from CA. I am a nursing hopeful with a lot of pre-reqs to complete. I hope to enjoy living in AR for a while. I don't know if I want to get a B.A. degree then pursue BSN or if I want to go straight BSN. But that's me...always contemplating.

    Hello,

    I'm from west central Arkansas (Mena). Been out of nursing for a long time, am now ready to go back. I'm really interested in Home Health, anyone know an approximate pay scale in that field? I've had my license for 25 years. I just found this site today & am thrilled to have found it. Thank you all in advance for your replies.

    Hi Kandee,
    I share you excitement of working with the elderly. They have so much to offer us and a lot of times we toss them aside like trash. The hold our past in their hands, their hearts and their minds. Here is a challange for you guys who have grandparents give them a call and listen to the remember the past while you still can.
    I am so happy that you have decided to do Nursing. I personally think that nuses who started off as cna's are more understanoing to other staff, because you have done all other jobs and are not afraid to get down and dirty if you need to it is like second nature to us. But we do run into the problem of trying to do it all ourselves. I was a cna for about 2 years and I was sure I loved it but wanted more. I became a lpn for a few years then graduated from the Associate Nursing Rn program( December, passed boards in March) and I loved being a LPN and now love being Rn, the pay is much better and my role silghtly changes in the hospital but not enough to make me crazy. You earn a new respect for Nursing when you start school, it is so much more than I ever thought when I was a CNA and each level you realized that more and more.
    I am glad that I got this post from you, I forgot about this site,we did this as an assignment in class, I think I will post at least once a week.
    I lOVE Nursing! God Bless You all :caduceus:

    Hey everybody! I am a LPN, worked for Baptist last 4 years, just started on my ASN/RN with excelsior. I know a few RN's who have gone through the program and done really well. Have 2 kids and work full time, just don't have the time and schedule available to go to school around here. I went to school at Baptist, it was a good school, but lots of politics. I work on a med/surg floor...mostly post-surgery patients and I love it. If any of you have gone through excelsior, let me know about your experiences!

    GO HOGS!!!
