    hi everyone,
    i have been reading these boards for a while, but have just recently started posting. i am 24 years old, have a bachelors in nutrition, and am in my third semester of an accelerated second degree program in philly. thankfully i will be graduating in may and i am trying to decide where i want to work. it is really interesting to talk with other students, especially when i am frustrated and need a break (which is pretty much all of the time!!!) it was nice to meet all of you.

    erin! all the best to you.

    hi everyone! i found the board while looking for scrubs online and while i didn't find the clothing, it looks like a great place to hang out!
    i'm 37 this dec. 18 and will start my last year in the rn program this spring (woohoo!).
    no kids, but have a supportive girlfriend, 2 dogs and a cat.
    i had the rare chance to sample the local health-care industry (thanks to my bike being sideswiped by a drunk in a car). both rider and motorcycle have recovered. i learned that in healthcare, it is far better to give than to receive.
    take care

    gromit, ! all the best to you.

    Hi everyone,
    My name is Stephanie, I will be 24 yrs old this Dec. 20th, and have just started my pre-recs for the Adn program at a community college. I also just took a position at a hospital so I could get more hands on experience in the atmosphere. I am a doing transcriptions, pt files and phone triage on a general med unit. It's been nice to learn all the stuff that goes on there. Well good luck to everyone. Take care

    Hi Stephany & everyone ... it's good idea
    my name is Mansour 29 y o Saudi with the most beautiful baby around the world . I start out my journey of Studying Nursing Right after my High School diploma in Saudi Arabia. I did 70 credits in Saudi Arabia, then decided to see more of the world and applied to Jordan unvi of Science and technology in Jordan. It's my first semester here in Jordan. The univi is tough and must put in allot of time studying. But non-the less none of this is new to me. I was hoping to travel to the states; i did get the acceptance to the unvi of Center Florida. Where as i did not get the acceptance for the visa. It's my honor to be a member of your board. Last but not lest i would like to ask about the field nursing process, is it just limited to books or is there such a field out there in the real world and could be able to get a job in this field? To make it more clearly in hospitals is it used?

    how wonderful for you to start early with your education. sorry to hear your visa was denied.

    it's my honor to be a member of your board.

    this and all the boards at allnurses are under the administration of brian, however, we are delighted you are here and look forward to more of your postings.

    yes, after the completion of school and successful passing of state boards, one have many options in obtaining a job and hospitals are among them.

    much continued success to you.

    hi, barbara! with getting your liberal arts degree, you shouldn't have but a couple of science classes left to do, right.

    much continued success to you.
