Hey Everyone I'm New...

  1. Hi,

    I just recently came across this forum when searching through Yahoo about Nursing School. I'm COMPLETELY new to nursing. I'm not in school for it yet but plan to be in the fall of 2006. I'm wanting to go in and specialize in NICU as my nephew last year was 2 months premature and the miracles those nurses made happen had me amazed. It's been in my heart to follow that career ever since October 13, 2004. I need a lot of help when it comes to finding out what requirements there are and how to pursue my dream career. I'm finishing my senior year of High School through the Distance Learning program provided by Texas Tech University. I'll be 18 in 4 days and I'm wanting to get started with applying for grants, school, and getting a schedule set up for what needs to be done and when to get it done. I hope to learn a lot through this forum, meet nurses in the same and other fields of medical, as well as hopefully give back to the forum once I'm more knowledgeable. My name is Andrea… I’m a very outgoing person and I love getting to know new people. I build websites as well as make bath and body products from scratch. These things have been my hobbies since I was about 16. I’ve been pursuing web design since I was in 6th grade when I built my first little site. I can’t wait to get to know people on the forum and start posting. I have a ton of questions and no idea where to start. For now I think I’ll just read and see if my questions have already been answered. Thanks to everyone for compiling all of the information and putting together this forum.

    HUGS
    Andrea

    P.S If there are any NICU nurses that wouldn't mind being a mentor it would be tremendously appreciated.
