    Adolescents/Pediatrics, preferrably w/GI patients, since I've had Crohn's Disease most of my life. I would love to be able to help the kids that have to put up with this awful disease!!

    ICU, ER mostly... I know from experience I'm too figety for OR and, although I'm facinated by oncology (lost a mother to breast cancer, father & sister are cancer survivors) I don't know that I have the heart for it. For some reason, pre/post op interrests me.

    I am in my third semester of a 2 year ADN program. I am planning on graduating in May 7, 2003. I am very excited to be nearing graduation. I am planning on working in tele as a new grad since I already work there as a nurse extern. I have take in my co-workers suggestion of working med/surg. I feel everyone is entitled to their own opinion. I feel and trust in my skills and ability to function successfully as a new grad in tele.

    Anywhere but the side of a hill in Fredericton NB on a cold fall day in a 100-year-old house with a crappy electric heating system and roommates who pop breakers for the baseboard heaters at midnight and don't know how to reset them so they leave them off all night and don't say a thing and you freeze your ass off. But I digress...

    Somewhere warm is Georgia, the Carolinas, West Texas, New Mexico, Hawaii, etc, etc, etc....most of which I've visited so I have at least a half a clue.

    All I have to do is pass the program. :-)
