    Yes, I had asked if there was anyone who knew of Childrens hospital in the Dallas area. My little sister had to go there alot and My step mother thought it would be a good place for me to work since I love Kids. The drive would be LONG.... I think it takes us about 2 hours to get there from my house. But I think if you are doing what you love, ther is no place to far! The only thing I was worried about was their reputation. I know our hospital doesn't have a good reputation at all. Thank you for your help!

    These are all good suggestions, especially if you already know you want to go into nursing.

    I went into nursing as a 2nd (3rd, 4th, I lost count of all the crummy little jobs in between) career, and believe it or not, the best preparation I had was waitressing. It taught me how to organize many different tasks, how to keep details straight, how to make customers happy (your tips depend on it!) I was on my feet and running for 8-10 hours at a time, getting stuff spilled on me, dealing with rude people and learning diplomacy. I can't say I would necessarily recommend doing it this way if you already know you want to be a nurse, this is just the way my life's path took me.

    Good luck!
