    Hi Love-A-Nurse!
    Thank you for your prayers-that means so much to me because I take those words literally and every one we get helps. I like most areas of nursing but my love is for oncology. I took care of oncology and (and pt.'s with AIDS, Hep., as well as other issues) for 8 years and met amazing people-some still with us and some not. Nursing is one of THE most honorable professions and I wanted to be a part of that sister/brotherhood.

    Hi "Love a Nurse"! -- (I have that on my front license plate!!)
    Actually, I really like nursing school. It is really tough & at times feels like it's kicking my a--! but, I know this is what I want to do & I really like it! I get to observe in the ER next week, so I'm really looking forward to that! I don't have my CNA or LPN, so this is all pretty new to me. How is your semester going?
    Take care!

I am currently enrolled in my first semester of a 2-year ADN program and I am taking Fundamentals of Nursing and Pharmacology. Nursing is always something thats been in my heart. I have a great love for people and a genuine desire to help and care for others! I'm not really sure what field of nursing I want to work in when I finish school but I was leaning towards OB or OR (I'm also a surgical tech)!:roll

    hi lisa, my name is lisa also. I am 28-years-old, and I'm enrolled in a 2-year ADN program and I will be taking Fundamentals of Nursing and Pharmacology Summer 2003. I am currently working in the Operating Room as a surgical tech.:roll

    jen, i started as a nursing assistant, i am an lpn and rn school presents new things that i didn't know, certain procedures, etc, i can't do as an lpn and the learning will not stop.

    thanks for asking, this semester is in high gear but the experience is wonderful!

    much continued success to you!
