hello everyone! After a while of lurking, I thought I'd delurk to introduce myself. I am 24 yo, married, with no kids unless you count one spoiled rotten kitty! I hope to start my ADN program in the Spring of 2003 after taking a load of prereqs in the fall (I already have a BS in Geography, reeeeeeeeeeeeeeally helpful in the job market, lemme tell ya!) I have also applied at my local hospital to work as a CNA (they are so short handed they are offering FREE on the job training!) to help get me acclimated to the medical environment as I have zilch by way of experience. I am excited about starting my nursing classes and even more excited about getting to help people instead of being stuck behind a desk all day! I would appreciate it if you guys would tell a little about yourselves so that I can get to know each of you!

Welcome!!! You sound a lot like me!! Only I got my BA in English and have a few more cats...(5 to be exact!!
) I can really relate to the job market comment...I'm currently writing this from my crappy job that I spent 1-1/2 stuck in my car to get to. Basically I decided be get my ADN because of job satisfaction. If I had to do this job for the rest of my life, I would seriously have to consider jabbing myself in my eye with my fine assortment of pens, pencils, & letter openers!!!
Seriously...I HATE my job and the animosity is growing steadily...so much so that I bring it home to my unfortunate husband!
I'm the only one in my office (I AM the office) and my bosses only comes in once a week...twice if I'm lucky (I actually do like them a lot). I know that there's something more for me out there and I truly believe Nursing is it!
Sorry... I didn't mean to go on like that....I'm just having a bad day...the Graduate assistant my boss hired ( who is NEVER on time if she actually decides to show up to work) is a major thorn in my side. She does NOTHING!!! And there is no exageration there...NOTHING!!!! And for that we pay her for the 20 hour per week commitment she made to do NOTHING and in addition for her job NOT well done, we pay her full tuition so she can go on to get her Ph.D. for FREE!!!!
Ack!!!!! I can't stand LAZY people who always skate by on their free rides at the expense of other people!!!
But I digress...
I am 25 and married with cats and finishing up my pre-requisites to get into my ADN program. I will be able to quit my crappy-a$$ job next August...so just a little over a year to go YEAH!!!!! I must also add that I was never meant to sit behind a desk all day and what posessed me to become an English major the first time around I for the life of me will never know!!! Anyway...good luck with your program and WELCOME!!!! I'm sorry I went off on such a tangent! :imbarrased:
