    Hi there!

    I've been on this site for a few weeks and I have read some things I never even thought existed...haha. I too am researching the nursing school thing as well. I was accepted to NGCSU last year but wasn't able to attend then. I have recently undergone a craniotomy for a brain tumor and the nurses at Gwinnett Medical were awesome. I even joked that if I were to have another child, I would come back to have it on the neuroscience floor because it was soo peaceful! Anyhow, I am trying to get reaccepted into NGCSU as I already have a B.S. in Community Health and a minor in Psych...any advice from anyone? At this point I'm just waiting to hear back from NGCSU and hope I can get back in for Fall 08.

    Hi everyone, my name is Jen. I graduated in December and passed my board in April. I am currently working in the ICU in Georgia. Nursing is definately different form what I expected. But I have only been working since June 16th. Hope it gets better.... so far I am a bit overwhelmed. I need to learn alot. It took me many many patients before I got my first IV started. There is another new nurse that works with me and she got it on her first try

    This is my second career change/ third degree and I am not even 30 yet!!!! I hope I won't be changing again :smackingf


    Just wanted to say HELLO!

    It takes time to know how to do things...do not compare yourself to other people. It will make you second guess yourself! Sounds like you need a boost of confidence. Take it day by day and try to do your personal best!! ICU is a highly skilled area and it will take you at least a year to be completely comfortable!! Relax and do your best!

    Sending lots of encouragement!!

    My name is Jason. My family moved to GA due to a military re-assignment (wife is an Army nurse). I am an LPN, but decided to hang up that hat for a while so I could pursue my RN (currently a student @ MCG)

    Hi GA nurses! My name is Leslie, I live in Tampa but my husband and I will be moving to Savannah, GA in a few short weeks. I am excited and looking forward to the change, and it appears the pay will be better than FL. I am 4 months pregnant and will be 5 months by then, so I will probably do some home health and/or private duty until the baby is born and then I will go back into the hospital setting, unless I luck out and find a place who doesn't mind hiring me in the middle of my pregnancy when Ill have to leave soon thereafter for maternity leave. I also like that I can take my time going back if I work agency for a while and it wont matter how much time I take off (hopefully at least a couple of months). When I go back to the hospital, I really want to work in L&D or mother baby. Looking forward to hanging out here more!

    Id love to hear from other nurses in the area!
