I agree wholeheartedly. I still feel like an imposter when I call myself a nurse, yet I don't quite fit in the student nurse forum anymore. In my opinion, getting my RN license was the beginning of my "real" nursing education. It would be nice to have a forum where I could find others in the same boat as I am.

tnrn, congratulations on completing school and passing the nclex-rn!
originally posted by adn 2002 i agree - i just graduated and i'd love to see a graduate nurse forum! i'm not really a nursing student anymore, but i'm not quite a nurse yet either...you know what i mean?
Congrats to all you new grads, and I think your idea to want a Graduate Forum here at allnurses is an excellent idea! That's using your noggins! Just don't forget about us oldster nurses on the other forums cause we love enteracting with you newbies, and sharing our knowledge with you all as well as encouraging you all through those tough times. :kiss
Hey guys, thank you for all the support. I did email Brian about this and have referred him to this post, maybe he will see it and agree with us. I haven't heard from him yet so keep fingers crossed. God bless you all ....
Thanks to ya'll for your encouragement and empathy for the plight of a GN/new RN. I have learned a great deal from the practical wisdom of the "oldsters" on this BB. A GN forum would not discourage me from visiting the other forums. However, when I come home from work feeling particularly clueless, maybe knowing where to find some others who may be feeling like me might help!
