I am graduating in December 2006 (5 weeks away!). I will be starting in MICU 6 days after I graduate, which is exciting and scary. Trying to figure out how I will handle orientation and studying for state boards. I am jumping right in - might as well just go for it! This is my 2nd career (accounting for 20 years), but after my husband was in an accident and we spent quite a bit of time at the hospital, I decided nursing was for me.
I will have just turned 46 when I graduate, but nobody seems to care whatsoever how old I am, which is a nice change from a lot of other areas.
