Introduction from Indiana

  1. Hello all
    I am a registered nurse in Indiana. Currently work as director of nursing on a transitional care unit. I am excited to have found this website, and look forward to meeting nurses. I have been a BSN for 8 years, and specialize in geriatrics. I am considering moving on to something different within the next year, and apply for a job on my hospital's OB floor:uhoh21: I am finding the thought of changing specialties a little scary, but necessary. I am sure you can all sympathize with job burnout, and I am pretty sure that is where I am at after 8 little years of nursing. Soooo....anyone have some advice from obstetrics?

    Nice to meet you, Nursejenner. I admire that you got your BSN at 20 years old and you are a DON and still in your 20's. Nursing must have made you grow up faster than most people in their 20's. Welcome, it's nice to have you here.

    Thanks much JLynn. It did make me grow up quite fast actually. Started college when I was 16 I wouldn't have it any other way now. What is your area of specialty? I see that you are a new grad. Good for you:hatparty:

    Howdy do fellow Hoosier !!
    It is nice to hear from nursing students. Are you going to IUPUI?? IVY Tech? How is the program now a days? I graduated with my BSN from IU in 1996. How far a long are you in your schooling? I bet Indy is much different from the little town you grew up in. I currently live in Greenfield.

    Ciao
