    i'll be working on a med- surg floor here in eastern oregon (basically the middle of the desert!!:imbar ). we're a pretty small area, but hopefully because of the size, i'll be able to get some good experience... once my son graduates (ok, so i still have 4 more years!!) i'm hoping to start traveling or move somewhere bigger so i can specialize...
    actually, at this point, i'm just happy to get back to work and begin life once again!!!!:hatparty:
    congrats to you!!!!!
    we did it!!!!!!

    Hey Happy,

    Doesn't It Feel Great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!i Know The Feeling Of Just Starting. I'm Very Happy For You. I Started Working As A Gn On A Surgical/telemetry Floor. And My Coworkers And Preceptor Treated Me Like One Of The Gang. They Allowed Me To Jump Right In. So, After I Passed My Boards, I Already Felt Like I Belonged. So, I Wish You Luck. Keep In Touch. Do You Plan On Joining Any Organizations? I'm Going To Join The Nbna And Ana. Keep In Touch Happystudent, Oh, I Guess You Have To Change Your Name No To Happyrn!!!!!!!!!!
