    Why don't you read more of my posts before you decide to hire me (chuckle). As to the kids - boy I had ONE and he was pretty overwhelming - he's 18 now and I have a feeling I'm going to have to have him "removed" (as in, scraped off the computer chair)!

    Horseheads, my parents used to play pinocle in Horseheads with friends every week! I have been back to Elmira twice since we left there (I was 8).

    Well, I'm not looking to move anytime soon, but if I do, I'll let you know! Meanwhile - praying for you and your kids

    I think you and I would get along just great. My DS1 love computer games too. (12) and DS2 (10) is starting Bagpipe lessons, (not yet up to the Bag yet) but that will be some time soon.

    When you do decide to move let me know!

    My name is Claire. Iwas an LPN for almost 20 yrs. I went back to nursing school 3.5 yrs ago and earned my BSN ib Dec. Earned seems like such a gentle term for the struggle of nursing school. Anyway, I'm now an assit DON of a long term care facility,never thought I'd say this,but I love it.

    Hi Claire. What a tough and rewarding job!! I am not "tough" enough (I guess is the word) for that high up, although I am only one step away from that here where I work. But blessed the higher ups take the fall for the fireing. Great work with the career advancement. Congrads! Though that does not show my respect for you with the hard work you had to go through.

    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!
    hey, im 21 and a nursing student at hunter, looking to make a great career for myself.

    Hi Ya'll!
    I just joined yesterday, so I'll count myself in as one of the many you'd like to greet. As a finishing-up student, I naturally eat, sleep, breathe nursing, and I imagine it might be like that for a long time, so why not hang out on a nursing bulletin board? Especially with such warm and welcoming people? Sounds good to me.

    Hello, All-
    I am fairly new here, also. I am an LPN in the Urology Department of the #1 Children's Hospital in the USA (Children's Hospital of Philadelphia). I am a triage nurse in the clinic. I have been an LPN for almost 14 yrs. but didn't work in the field for 9 yrs. I worked previously at a long term care facility. It's been a little scary coming back. I would love to take some refresher courses, but can't find any.
    I am married and have two children: my daughter is almost 14 (born 10 days after I graduated nursing school!), and my son is 11 (diagnosed in 2003 with Juvenile Diabetes).
    If anyone has any tips, I'd be grateful.

    Hello Everyone, my name is Dinah White. I believe my age is 47,but that is just a numerical reference to me. I know people who are older and you would never know, and some that are younger and you'd swear they were 99.
    Anyway, most of my nursing career has been in labor & delivery until over two years ago and now I am a level III NICU nurse.
    I live and work in Northwest Arkansas, one of the fastest growing areas in the United States, due mostly to Wal-mart.
    I am presently becoming unattached, have a 20 year old daughter, Cheryl, who is a marketing major and is working this summer in Minnasota at Camp Thunderbird as a swimming counsler. Also a 19 year old son, Klye, who is an engineer student and is living with me this summer in my "first" apartment while he is taking summer courses.
    I'm trying not to make anymore of those "life event" changes right now, but am very interested in travel nursing, especially when both kids are back in school this fall. But I am kinda nervous about not being "around" for them...
    Any thoughts in that area would be taken to heart.
    Hope to get to know all of you,
    Dinah

    (guess I have'nt figured out those smilies)
