    I'm finally registered.

    I love this website and read the forums for months, but I was not able to register because of the firewall on my old computer.

    I just started an accelerated BSN program after working in manufacturing for 11 years. I have a wife and two small children, so I won't have a lot of time to post. In fact, I should be doing my nursing process paper right now (ha ha ha).

    In spite of everything, I will make time because Allnurses is like hearing all the shop talk from different nurses everywhere.

    Hello everyone- I am currently a RN with a BSN in New York and will be moving to Florida in a few months. This is my first time posting something and I was wondering if anyone out there can tell me anything about nursing in Florida- west coast, by Sarasota-Bradenton area. I recently got married and my husband and I love Florida, so we purchased a new home that will not be ready for a few months. Any good hospitals anyone knows about?

    Does Stinkey Pete have Stinkey feet? eh?

    Welcome to the board! Yeah, make time for Allnurses, it will help with your studies and you can probably help some OTHER people! I have never regretted sharing experiences here cuz there is always someone who needed to hear what I said.

    Good luck!

    Hi Daisee! welcome!

    One good bet is to go to the nursing discussion by location section and finding the "Florida" section, which I have posted here:

    http://allnurses.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=141

    If you don't come across what you need, hit the "new thread" blue button and write out your question.

    It will also be helpful if you then click on "Thread Tools" on the right, then select "subscribe". Then you can get email notification if someone responds (if you don't hear, check the site again anyway in case something messed up).

    Good luck and I hope you let us know how things work out! Take care!

    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!

    lotz of information on you. that's cool. sounds like you have your stuff together.
    i am trying to meet and greet people. i am the "kid" on the block.
    i am psyching myself out with questions regarding whether i am smart enough to be an RN. should i just be an LPN and is that a little easier?
    i was trying to be a physical therapist back in '97 and felt so horrible when i received a C in AandP. hmmmm. i have been out of highschool forlike 10 years and i am scared that my math skills are so gone and that i may not even make through applications into a nursing program.
    what is your experience?

    Hello Everyone,

    My name is Deidre and I am somewhat a pre-nursing student I am waiting to take my clinicals. During these two years I am having a bad time in school. I am trying everything I can to pass, but I can't seem to get my gpa at a 3.0 for a particular college I am intrested in. I am at the point of quitting , and I don't know what to do. I am from Pennsylvania I hope that someone out there can give me some advice. I only hear the success stories of the over achiever, but I am sadly to say that I am the under achiever coming in at a whopping 2.4 I have a long way to go, or quit. I take class after class and still I feel as if I am getting no where. I am also tired of hearing from the smug nursing students here, that if you are a C student then know one will want you to treat that person. But if you are an A student then your are the best thing since Penicillin.
    I have tried over and over againg to be an A student but am tired of being average.

    Help, I may quit in march if nothing picks up around midterms.

    hey girl, i feel a. not sure if i am responding right. these threads are all new to me. this may be an old posting., but i am new and trying to meet people. and you are def. one with my same circumstances.
    i am twenty eight years old. i was inschool for physical therapy in 1998 and became frustrated with the competitive edge and hard application expectations. i , too, had a 2.4 gpa and couldn't get it up.
    i quite. i am now..........old. and regret giving up. i regret not seeking tutors or gifted students to help me out. i regret not seeking couseling and trying to figure out what my problem may be.
    now i am trying to return to school, my gpa is now 3.0 thanx to taking dumb classs that i was actually good at (dance /choreography... )
    anyway, just wanted to say hi. i feel ya.
    should we keep trying?
    i want to be a nurse and i need to pick up my low self esteem from failure so many years ago, and try not to quit again.
    we need to finish this, right?
    nice to meet you
    jt

    I was a C/D student in math and science in high school! Some magic happens when you are going for something you love -not to worry!
