    Hi, Im Melissa and I'm new here. I'm 33 years old, have a 9-year old son and living in Irvine, Orange County. Im a registered nurse in the Philippines. I just passed the NCLEX-RN exam and am now waiting for my interview in a hospital in Long Beach. Hope I make it! By the way, I just would like to ask if I can get my permanent license if I can only submit to the California Board of Registered Nursing my Individual Tax Identification Number. I don't have my SSN yet since I don't have my work permit yet.:spin:

    Hey, welcome to the site!

    I really feel bad when I see all the threads from new people introducing themselves. There's just NO WAY that I could stop and post to each and every one of you!

    So I just wanted to say hey, how are you, and I hope you have a good experience!

    I'm 46, an RN trained in a diploma school in Maine (1981). I've done all kinds of nursing, my favorite being geriatrics, with Chemical Dependency a close second.

    I currently live in Maine, have a 17 year old son (who is just beginning driver ed, ugh!). I'm a Born Again Christian (3 years) but have to say that I am not one of those thumpers, LOL! How that happened is a long strange trip, I started out Catholic, tried all kinds of religion, no religion, etc. Then I ended up in AA (1985). I learned so much about tolerance, and the fact that God works miracles in EVERYONE's life, not just the "special" (wink) people.

    So along with being sober I've also had to deal with my mental health issues, depression/bipolar, anxiety, oh fun fun...

    SO - feel free to say hi, in this thread or through a private note! Happy you are here, lots of wonderful people! God bless! :hatparty:

    Feel free to post on this thread, and if I see you "around" I will say hello!

    Hi all,

    I am a 38 Y/O male starting nursing school on Jan 9, 2006.
    I have decided to get my LPN first, then take the transition program to ASN, then complete a BSN program.

    I have a BS in Medical Technology and have worked as a medical technologist (lab tech) for 10 years now and am itching for a change.

    My best friend is an LPN and we work at the same hospital, so I was able to see many aspects of nursing I admittedly was ignorant of before.

    Anways, I look fwd to perusing these forums as they seem to be a wealth of good information.

    Thanks.

    IU95, Welcome. IMHO Skip the ASN and go straight for BSN.

    HI, Im new here. You can call me sweetiepie. I live in Binghamton, NY and work as a Physical/Brain Injury Rehab RN. I have been a nurse for 1 1/2 years. My goal as a nurse is to work in the community and if I can, specialize in patient education. I have been married for 6 months to my college sweetheart. we've been together for a total of 6 years. I love to read and talk on the phone especially to my grandmother. I hope to get to know some one here and learn a lot from nurses all over the country or even the world. :icon_bigg

    I'm very happy to know that there's a nurse's forum like this on the net. Had I known earlier.... Anyway, I'm 30 yrs old, married, with 3 kids. I graduated with a degree in Nursing last April 2005 and passed the Philippine Nurse Licensure Exams June of 2005. I am looking forward to meet everyone. Thanks!

    Hi Everyone. I"ve been an RN for almost 35 years and I"ve been working in the Home Health field for the past 10 years. I'm married and have 5 grown children. I've been reading the posts on this site for about a month and I have been impressed with all of the valuable information that all of you have to offer.

    Hello! My name is Lyndsay and I am going to be attending Nursing school. I have attended college before and I am a Certified Clinical Massage Therapist-but that just wasn't enough for me! That was only a taste of the health care field-I want more!! I have a lot of questions and I hope to learn a lot about nursing so that I can decide exactly what I want to pursue in this field.

    I've been a lurker in other forums for a long time. This forum definitely encourages participation. So, thank you all very much.

    I started out graduating from medical school. Then I found out I had a pretty serious illness that I haven't been able to make work with residency. Then I have to wonder, did I pick the right career in the first place. I've thought about nursing for a long time not as a "second best" but as a better fit and a better life for me. The people I respect feel the same. Now I'm trying to apply for accelerated BSN programs. I don't know what career I will evenually have, but I know I can help people with the knowledge I know and can learn from working in nursing. Thanks for listening.
