    Is someone making a list of all of us who are in TN so we can coordinate a get together?
    I work at the VA in Nashville and am very happy there. The money and benefits are excellent, and while I am not fond of unions, there is one there that is pretty active.
    I went to nursing school at a small private college called Cumberland University in Lebanon. It probably isn't as expensive as Belmont, but you have to want to drive 20 miles east of Nashville to go to school. It was a good school and we had very good clinical experiences.
    I am thrilled to meet (cyber wise) so many other Tennesseans!

    I live in Murfreesboro and went to school in Tullahoma (Motlow State CC). Just graduated in May. Already taken and passed boards and am working in Nashville at Baptist and love it.

    Glad to hear you like my home town, Baptist used to been a great training place for nurses, sounds like maybe they still are.Sometimes I think I'd like to move back but we've been in a small town for so long now I'm not sure I'd like big city living anymore, and Nashville has certianly grown-up fast. Good luck to you, hope you continue to enjoy being a nurse!

    Spent most of my life in Memphis and graduated ADN program there before moving to Texas 5 yr ago. Now in grad school and working in 450 bed hospital. Going to Memphis TODAY to see grandbaby and Pandas! Miss the music but Texas is a country all its own. Miss Nashville too. Used to travel there a lot.

    Hi all! I'm from Cleveland, just about 15 min from chattanooga for me. I'm in the process of trying to find somewhere to work that will work with my school schedule this fall, so I may be in chattanooga or a surrounding town before too long.

    Highasthesky... you live in Westmoreland, how long have you lived there. I live in Castalian Springs, about 10 min from Westmoreland.
    I am an RN and I work in Labor and Delivery and love it, I work nights though, which I don't like. I work in Gallatin, which is about 30 miles north of Nashville. It is nice to see all you volunteers here, GO UT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hey, I think that my SIL used to work @ your facility back in '99. She left just prior to her EDD. Gallatin is a lovely town. I stayed there for a week while taking a lay midwifery class. Do you know if the lay midwife is still there? She was a very good teacher.

    One of my friends was raised in Castalian Springs. Her mother still lives there. She lives in Nashville. We attended Lipscomb together (many, many years ago).

    Go vols!

    I do not think the lay midwife is still in Gallatin. I don't know about lay midwifes, trained midwifes ok, but I didn't know her at all, so I don't know how she was, but we did ocassionally get patients from her. Anyway.... where do you work now??

    After many years in Nashville, I relocated to Chattanooga & work at Erlanger.

    Are you currently working as a nurse? I went to TSU with a gal who'd just finished her nursing degree & began working as a nurse while starting the PA program at Trevecca. A good program from what I hear. Good luck to you in your studies!
