    God bless you woman with 5 kids and still having a coherent bone in your typing finger! YIKES!

    Glad you're here, sorry we're not there! What are you doing for work?



    I currently work pediatrics and telemetry, l say 'currently' because l found out that in nursing you never know what you like until you have actually tried it. Atfirst l was going to do L&D, but l quickly found out that it wasn't my field. Goodluck in school.

    Hi!

    I just joined today. My name is Jennifer and I am a pre-nursing student who is trying to finish her pre-reqs at Southwestern College. I am trying to find out which college is the best for me. I am in the San Diego area and looking at SDSU, Maric, and Southwestern's Nursing Program. I am currently active duty Navy serving on the USS Ronald Reagan, an aircraft carrier homeported on Coronado Island. I I have exactly 11 mos left in the service having already served 4 years. I am 23 and have wanted to become a nurse since I was young. My mother is a nurse and she is the best person I know, shes my hero. Its really great to find a forum like this to meet people and also get some advice on this new career and lifelong dream I am finally embarking on! Any advice on the schools I listed or any other schools you think are great would really help! Thanks for welcoming me!

    Thanks for serving!

    I wonder if there is a forum for former or current military nurses... I know I have seen PEOPLE here who are or have been in the service! I'll check it out and if there isn't, I'll suggest it to Brian (owner)

    Take care and good luck!

    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!
    thank you zoe,

    yes, i sure am glad i stopped and didn't waste any more $ and time. i so wish that i could have that $20,000 in loans back. oh well. it was an experience. i do know many people like that teacher. in law school, a good amount of the people i met didn't want to be there but felt since they started, they had to finish. i didn't see things that way.

    i love your quote/verse. it's one of my favorites.
