Hi all!

  1. I'm new here and just wanted to introduce myself. I'm a fairly "new" RN. I graduated nursing school in 2002. Prior to that, I was a respiratory therapist for 18 years. I was a full-time mommy, full-time worker and part-time college student for years...working my way through nursing school pre-req's one at a time. I finally enrolled full-time in nursing school at age 39, graduated 1st in my class from what is probably one of the last existing Diploma programs in the US and am currently completing my BSN. I hope to EVENTUALLY complete my MSN in either acute care or education. Would love to hear from y'all!
