Introducing...me!

  1. Hi! I'm a soon-to-be nurse (graduating from an ADN program in less than 3 weeks). I'm very excited about becoming licensed and beginning practice. I have accepted a position in the ED of a growing hospital, and I'm very much looking forward to beginning work. I'm already looking into getting my BSN, and maybe even becoming an NP or earning a PhD.

    Anyone interested in chatting...I'm here!

    Congratulations on getting the position you wanted! You must be so excited. I graduate in August and also am interested in the ED but everyone says I should get some Med-Surg experience. I was wondering,what kind of orientation are you getting? Good luck!!

    I heard the same thing, from many different sources. Fortunately I work in a doctor's office that sees many would-be ED patients and does various in-office procedures. I feel I've gained invaluable experience from that, and in time it showed through to my instructors and fellow students. When I interviewed in the ED, I felt very confident in my choice to start out there. My thinking is, why shouldn't I start out doing what I'm really passionate about? And I learned later that one of my instructors called the ED to recommend me (the same teacher I'd heard say new grads are no-no's in the ED or critical care areas). It all depends on the person, not all of us are alike.

    And I believe it's at least 16 weeks precepting one on one at the facility I'm going to.
