A little about us??

  1. I know this has been done a while back... But I think it would be fun to do.... We should all give a brief lil info about ourselves, like where we are from, working on pre-reqs or in nursing school.. etc..

    1. From Fort Smith, Arkansas
    2. Just accepted to and RN program, ADN.. Start in January


    Been married for 1 1/2 years.. Dated the guy for 6yrs before... Am originally from Mississippi, but my husband got a job here in Arkansas... and it brings the $$$$ so I had to move hehe

    No children except for two 4 legged ones.. a 16lb orange male kitty name Thomas.. and a 11lbs ragdoll kitty named Chloe..

    This will be my 2nd degree.. I graduated from Mississippi State with a degree in Veterinary Technology in May 2000.. Loved it, miss it greatly but no money or respect....

    Now I want to work in either Labor/Deliver or OB.. But I am sure that can change.. ICU intrigues me, but not sure how I could handle it...


    Have Fun

    hey all!

    great idea this is.

    my name is zach. i'm from the pacific northwest. i am 23, 6'2"...oh wait this isn't a personal ad tomorrow i finish my 1st quarter of an adn nursing program. i've spent about a year and a half working on the pre-reqs. the real program is a killer!

    this is my second round at college. right after high school in '95 i went to a tech college for a while studying electronics. i was so unmotivated and eventually stopped going. having a career in healthcare was always appealing to me and now what i'm doing really motivates me and i love the challenge!

    it's too early for me to decide on a specialty, but i'm thinking maybe public health or telemetry. we'll see. i'm one of the few who doesn't have l&d as their first option! lol.

    I'm 29 (30 next month, yikes!), married 7+ years with three kids (6, 4, and 14 months). I finish my first quarter of an ADN program today (YAY!) and I'll be done with that in 6/03.

    I've known I've wanted to go into nursing since high school, but was always discouraged by my mother (who has told me on many occasions that nurses are "only glorified butt-wipers"). I putzed around in college, taking a bunch of biology and chemistry, and came within about two quarters of getting a degree in biochemisty. I quit school several times trying to decide what to do, knowing that I didn't want to sit in a lab all day. After I had my first child, I knew that midwifery was what I wanted to do, but I waited until I had my third to get the kick in the butt to actually finish my prereqs (I only had A&P to complete) and get to doing it. I did a childbirth educator course, a doula course, and some breastfeeding courses during those five years, thinking that tackling nursing school would be to big of a thing. My big decision was actually whether I wanted to go the nurse-midwifery route or the licensed midwifery route -- as long as nothing happens in the meantime, I've obviously made my choice, and I'm really happy with it.

    Hi! My name is Brandy (bet you would have never guessed that)

    I am 22 years old, and I live in Kirksville Missouri.

    I am currently finishing up my last year at Truman State University in a BSN program. I finish this semester on December 18th, and then I only have one semester to go. I graduate with my BSN on May 18, 2002.

    I am specializing in Emergency/Trauma and Intensive Care (my speciality track starts next semester)

    I work part time as a tutor, computer technician, and a writing consultant.

    I live with my Fiance, and no children.

    In May, we will be moving to Hannibal Missouri, and I have already accepted a postion there for PCU/ICU and ER starting in June. We are also currently house-hunting.

    During my free-time I am one of your "friendly neighborhood moderators", and I try to keep track of my own website as well.

    Hugs,

    I am Suzanne. I am 22 years old and I have 2 children ages 6 and 12 months. I have been married for 3 years. I am currently finishing up my pre-reqs for my ADN and I will start the nursing program in the fall. I will graduate probably in 2004 and then will work on my BSN. My future plans are to become a midwife when I am done with my BSN. I am not sure what college I am going to attend though.
