Excelsior Grads - Where are they now?

  1. 14 EC grads,

    Post your year of graduation and your specialty/specialties. I'll go first:

    I've been a Level II/III Neonatal ICU nurse since graduation in January '06.

    Update 10/2015: I've worked for a large Level IV NICU since 2009, where I've had both bedside and staff development educator roles. Although I just finished a master's degree in nursing education (from EC), I am currently enjoying a role as a bedside nurse. I'm considering more school - trying to decide between the nurse practitioner route or the Ph.D./tenure-track faculty route.

    Graduated from EC with my ADN in September 2003.
    I was an LPN/LVN for 7 years prior in med/surg and some LTC.
    Since getting my RN I've stayed in SICU, MICU, and more recently, PACU.
    I will graduate with my BSN from a local state university at the end of this spring semester.
    Counting down the days.
