Introduction

  1. Hello Everyone,
    My name is Laura and I expect to graduate next June. I just finished cardiac and cannot be happier that summer break is almost here! I remember when I wanted the school to offer summer classes so I could finish sooner, but now I am tickled for the upcoming break!
    I enjoy the discussions I have read, thank you all!
    Laura

    Laura,
    Congratulations on your coming graduation!!!! I am so happy for you and happy that you are so thrilled to be a part of this wonderful profession!

    You state that you are finishing cardiovascular nursing. Did you like it?

    What are your career plans? What kind of nursing do you plan to practice?

    For the record, I go by Scherzo and I am an ICU nurse in a very large and busy metropolitan area. I teach BSN nursing clinicals, as well. I was going to start a doctoral program this fall, but opted for some time off, just as you did. I am planning to start that program in a year. I want to continue with teaching and speaking at conferences and workshops...and keep taking patients at the bedside! My students and colleagues say that they love that I do the advanced practice things AND I regularly take a patient load.

    My mother was an LVN...but she never got to see me as a nurse.

    I have no idea what I want to do yet. I still have neuro, OB, Ortho,Psych and critical care rotations yet to do. When my Mom was in ICU I was inspired by several of the nurses she had! My hats off to you! I am also impressed with your pursuit of your doctorate! Where do you find the time for all you do?
