    Hello
    My name is Kiffany but everyone calls me "Baby Girl". I am twenty one years old. I have no kids and I don't plan on having any. I am currently a pre-nursing student at Sinclair Community College in Dayton, Ohio but I have plans of leaving Sinclair and doing a LPN program because the wait here is too long. My goal is to be a Nurse Anestheist.

    Hey Everyone!!!

    Well, I'm pretty new to this. My name is Tim, 21, 2nd year ADN student at Southern Arkansas University. I'm in Med/surg this semester and should graduate in May 2003. I have no kids, no wife, and I'll probably keep it that way for a while. I'm too young for that right now. I'm just a single young guy just trying to have a good time! Once out of school I plan to go far from where I am now. And hopefully, after a year of med/surg, plan to become a travel nurse. Good luck to all of you!! --Tim

    Hello all!

    So many of us!

    Well, my name is Katie, I'm 19 and from sunny England! Just in my second year @ university doing a BA (bachelor of arts) honours degree up in Liverpool. I'm due to qualify in Jan 2005, after starting in Sept 2001. I'm in a long term relationship with no children as of yet!

    Anyway, I was wondering if someone could explain all these abbreviations to me? I know we nurses use them a lot, but I'm not used to these american ones
    LPN? BSN? I'm guessing they are nursing courses?

    Cheers,
