    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 4/2013: In 2009 I became a staff nurse at a large academic level III NICU. I accepted a nurse educator position there in 2011. For 2013, I'm the president of our local professional organization for NICU nursing.

    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.
