    hello!

    i'm new here as well. i'm a first year nursing student in ontario, canada. i came across this site a few days ago and i have been addicted ever since!

    welcome, habs!

    i can relate....very addictive.

    but, you know...it is a way in giving back to our profession...and that is why i am here.

    some forums for you to start off:
    the canadian nursing forum
    general nursing student discussion forum
    nursing student assistance forum

    you can access them here as well: allnurses list of forums?

    i wish you the very best!

    look forward to seeing you in the forums.

    hi, yes i am new. thanks for the email
    i'm 26 i was trained in bc graduated in 2004, but relocated to alberta, now my husband wants to go back. i think i do, too but from some of the chat here about the ablerta/bc differences i am not so sure.
    i don't have my heart set on nursing though, i could be a rehab aide in a group home. that's what i did before i went to school. rehab aides (private) make the same in bc as lpn's do alberta. care aides in bc make more than top scale lpn's in alberta!!!!! but in alberta you can get a postion when you get hired and the expectations are really high-if you like that- i don't-not for the wage.
    in bc you can't get a job much less a position though the wages are way higher and the expectation is eqaul to the ideal i had when i graduated.
    nursing is hard and stressfull,
    i didn't catch form your email, if your still working? it sounds like it. i tried to go back and look but then i lost all i had typed and had to start over. it's nice to hear from a real person, with real challenges. so many nurses seem 'perfect'.
    i am struggling with some depression. my mom is schizophrenia. my aunt is bipolar and i have an uncle who is nyd.
    what kind of workload do you have an have? you had to take time off (diasbility)? do your challenges affect your hirability? i am thinking about taking a leave but i am concerned about those kind of things.
    my counsellor wants me to try antidepressants, but i dunno. i dont' want to be all loopie. i haven't been relying on my faith very much, i think i need to make more effort there first.
    i understand what your saying about aa, by brother lives wiht us and he is a drug addict of eight years, he's been clean 30 days. he really benefits from the aa stuff, and it sounds amazing. he's sahring it wiht me and it helps me learn to cope since i am codependant.
    anywho, glad you emailed me and thanks for being so honest in your email.
    ciao for now

    Hello. I'm new as well. I'm 33 and began my first day of part-time nursing school yesterday. I am attending school to become an LPN and will finish in 2007. I then plan to go on to an RN a year or two after that. I'm glad to be here and I'm sure that I can learn a lot from those of you who have been through this already and are seasoned veterans. Thanks for having me!

    [FONT=System]Greetings

    [FONT=System]I am an RN/LNC currently working in a PCU and the ICU in Maryland. I look forward to meeting other nurses for friendship, support, and exchanging information and ideas. If I hear one more nurse manager say, "We need to look at creative scheduling" because our HPPD's are useless when staffing an acute care unit, I am going to commit homicide!!!
    [FONT=System]Other than that I am a very docile person.

    HI,
    I enjoyed your posting but I have a question. I have never heard the term reformed Christian. What does that mean?

    Welcome.

    Hope things improve on your end. And if you are depressed, medication does help take the edge off. Don't dismiss the possibility as a treatment choice for you. Depressive tendencies, like other illnesses, may run in family as well...suggesting a strong biological component. Folks with depression in family tend to respond to antidepressants. Codependency is a way of life coping which places you also at risk for additional depression. Good to see you have counselor. I wish you the best in your health and in your career.
