    I am new to this site, so bare with me. I'm not a nurse YET, but will be going through CNA training soon. From there I plan on working towards my LPN and go on from there. My ultimate goal is to get into OB or Pediatrics and would like to eventually counsel pregnant teens. This is a career change for me, I'm 32 with two daughters, 3 and 1. I know I'm in for a tough ride, especially working full time as well. My husband works full time and is a full time student. We live in Colorado.

    What were you doing before? I wish you good luck - sounds like an interesting journey!

    Hey. My name is Shea (pronounced "Shay"). I'm 22Y. I live in MS. I am not married and have no children (not ready yet).

    I'm a 1st semester nsg student in the 2-yr ADN program here. I work as an ER tech at one of the local hospitals. I never planned on doing nsg. (My mom and stepmom are nurses.) I had always planned on doing med school (specialize in emergency medicine). I changed my major while I was working on my B.S. in Biological Sciences w/ an emphasis in Micro.

    So, anyways, I was looking up some info. to help me with one of my first care plans. (This seems like it's gonna be a pain. ) And I saw this message board. Looks like a great place.

    Hi, I'm Nancy and I am a OB RN. I graduated from school in 2000 with my BSN and a BA in Psych, thought I wanted to be a nurse-attorney, went to law school and decided I hated it. I didn't return after my 1st yr. :hatparty:

    I worked for a while with at-risk kids. I should call it volunteer because the pay was crap. I got married, had a child and decided it was time to use my nursing degree. Nursing offers some of the best flexibility out there. I sat for my boards last year (1/04) and have been working as an RN since. I work FT as an OB nurse and do PER Diem work in geriatric facilities.

    I have a 2yr old daughter and I'm expecting a son in 2 months. We live in Laurel, MD. I wish I sat for my boards earlier as I have really enjoyed working as a nurse. The pay could be better but I'll take 3 days of work and 4 days with my family anytime. I've been on this site for over a year and this is my 1st time posting. Shame on me. Anyway, I find this site really useful. Welcome to all the newbies.

    Oh and we are planning on moving to Tampa/St. Pete, Florida in the fall. Any advice or guidance would be grately appreciated. Any word on the best places to work/live out there would be great. I don't want to go anywhere just because the Nursing Spectrum lists them. I'd rather honest, inside advice. Feel free to e-mail me too.

    Hi Nancy, well, a belated welcome to the board! I'm SO GLAD you figured out you hated law before you invested all that time! I will always remember a teacher who went through the entire thing; 6 months after he graduated he realized he HATED teaching! I felt bad for him.

    Which is one reason why I often recommend that anyone considering nursing ought to try working as a nurses aide first, see if they like that kind of envt.

    ANYway, glad you have found your niche! Hope to see you posting more!

    You might want to try the nursing student and pre-nursing forums! Otherwise your prospective school should be able to help you (also if it hasn't been long since high school, the hs should be able to help you too!)

    Good luck!

    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!

    And, thank you for the invite...
