    hi.. i am rhonda, 27, from MN. i will graduate from my LPN program in May 2004. i have been a CNA for the last 10 years and finally decided to get my butt in gear i am not going into the RN program right away and even if i did it will only be a 9 months course because i am in the associates degree program. i want to really get to know what i am doing as a nurse before i move on. and the place i am at now, the RN's have a speciallity such as a charge nurse or OB or ortho nurse or gastric bypass surgery worker. i work at a hospitol med/surg/ob floor and float to ICU and ER on occasion. i also work as a HUC (health unit coordinator) so i have learned alot. been doing this part for the last 5 years now and in my 10 years have work with almost everything you can imagine as a CNA. my favorite was the pt i took care of in a spinal injury home.

    anyways.. i have 2 daughters... alanna will be 4 in January and Tarah will be 2 in November and i am a single mom. i miss my kis alot when i am at school and they miss the heck out of me but it will be worth it in the end

    Hi all I'm in my 2nd semester of my ADN program at a community college. The waiting list was so long at my school that I was able to take all my pre-reqs, co-reqs and have two babies before I started the program.

    I just finished my rehab rotation (today) and am heading off to my med-surg rotation next week. I am loving being a nursing student (well, except for the bedpans) and can't wait to call myself a real live nurse in Dec' 05!!
