    Hello everyone! This is my first day here. I am an RN of 19 years. Geriatrics is my favorite area of practice. I have three grown children and 5 grandchildren. One daughter is in the air national guard and has a five year old son that I keep when she is sent away. This makes things a little difficult as to what shifts I can work so I do the best I can to juggle,so would love hearing from others who may be in the same situation.

    Hi,
    I am new here, does it show? I am a nursing student at SLU in St Louis, married to a cop and mother of four (5 if you count the cop). I am 34 and starting my Jr. year at SLU. I am a dual major, Psych., and will start my clinicals in the Fall. I was out of school for about 12 years and went back 2 years ago (four kids remember). I can't wait to finish and start my new career! Today my husband asked me if I would consider trying for the CRNA program after I finish my BSN and work for a few years. I've been reading a little about it and it sounds interesting.
    Well sorry to rattle on. Thanks for the welcome.

    Hi everyone,
    I've just signed on today and so I wanted to drop in to say hello to my new fellow allnurses community

    A little about myself... I'm currently a F/T student in San Francisco still crossing my fingers to get accepted into any nursing programs around the Bay Area. So far it has been two semester and the lottery still hasn't dropped my name out yet. Don't know what to do? It's really hard to get into nursing now a days with the lottery system going on. I don't know exactly when my turn will be up?

    I'm hoping by joining this forum, I could learn or get advice from members all around and perhaps we could help one another out with ideas, etc...

    Now my first question for this forum and I hope someone can give me some sort of advice... Is there any other route that we can take to become an RN rather than waiting around for the nursing program lottery to pick us? Is there such things as LVN-ADN or BSN?

    Thanks,
    Lan

    Hello everyone,

    just want to let you know that I am a retired (20 Years) Navy Hospital Corpsman who challeged the California LVN exam back in 1993 and received a license. I had never had the opportunity to use it because of my deployment status. I moved to Washington state and cannot use it there because the Navy refuses to support that program but the Army has an existing program. Now I am in Texas and was not excepted for the same reason. What a bummer.

    What a joke when nurses are needed SO BADLY! I hope something turns up for you soon!

    Hi, my name is Georgiana and I'm 17 years old. Just graduated from high school this Spring and am looking into possible career choices. I've been looking into the equestrian studies (which is hard to pursue considering I live in Manhattan), jr. high or high school guidence counslor, and a nurse (possibly an ER Nurse, not sure yet). I've read a couple of postings, have got a lot of great information and will continue to.
