    I've been a RN for about 2.5yrs and still feel proud to sign that RN after my name. One of the best feelings of accomplishment I've ever felt. Yea for you!!!

    We all had name pins that said "RN" on them but that part was covered up with adhesive tape and "GN" written in. The day my report came back I tore the tape off in the locker room, put on my scrub dress (we didn't wear tops and pants in those days...and did I really wear a 34-36?) and ran in to my PACU to work...and was put in the isolation room with a patient with some sort of infection, wearing a gown and all....and nobody could see my new RN. ::crushed sigh::

    But one of the nurses had caught a glimpse of it and engineered a little celebration for me when I came out for break. Bless you, Ginger Wlody, wherever you are. I will never forget you!

    I'm starting my first job as an RN after being an LPN for 9 years. I am going to try really hard not to sign my name, then LPN!!!
