I am going to be graduating from an ADN program in a week and as soon as I can after graduation I will take my boards. I was looking at being an ER nurse but was told by several people that getting ICU experience first would be a good idea. I am going to be taking the RN-BSN program starting next summer (2008). I was also looking for a RN-PS program in Iowa (if anyone knows of any good programs in Iowa, please let me know).
I have been running on a private ambulance service as an EMT-Basic for about 2.5 years and have worked as a CNA for almost 6 years doing orthopedics (4.5 years) and telemetry (about 1.5 years and I read the telemetry monitors as well). Just looking to see what people's views are for my plans and for any advice.
