    Hello everyone!
    My name is Erika, and I am a 22-year old ADN student with hopes of becoming a CRNA. I came across this site last week and I have been 'lurking' since then. I just wanted to step in a make myself known. I work full-time and am in nursing school full-time (yeah, I know!!), but I am glad there is a site out there like this, of the posts that I have scanned, I see this is going to be a very informative, and fun site. I look forward to sharing experiences, and swapping stories/info. See you around!!!

    Hi, my name is Tara....I'm in my 3rd semester of a 18 month R.N program. My next rotation is GIGU. I graduate next summer. I love this board. Im 24 and have no kids. I'm lucky enough to only work 10-15 hours a week. I passed my final on May 5th. It was cummulative. Can you believe there were only two B's in a class of 50. 16 people failed. That sucks but im hanging in their. My summer class is 6 weeks. Usually each semester is 8 weeks. I have 2/ 12 hour shifts in the hospital for those 6 weeks and lecture 8:30am-12:30 pm on Mondays and Fridays. SO its major crunch time. This is supposed to be the hardest classs of the program till I get to Ortho/ Neuro. At least I have all of july and August off till the fall session starts, than its full swing for 1 yr and maybe a few week breaks in between. I work with a psychologist group now and I hope to go into pediatric psychology. Or anything dealing with kids, maybe OB. Well I guess ill think about that when I get through school. Good luck to every one!!!!!!!!!!

    Hi guys! My name is Steven, and this is my first post. I am 33 y/o, I work as an RMA at an urgent care clinic, and I am a Hospital Corpsman in the Navy Reserves. I just received my acceptance letter to a BSN program as a junior transfer for summer entry. I'll be doing all my sophomore nursing classes this summer, and have junior status this fall. I'm very excited about getting started, as i've been working on pre-req's off and on for four years!! After school I'm hoping to receive a commission as a Navy Nurse Corpse officer. Any advice you guys can give a new nursing student will be appreciated!! Bye for now.
