Just to say hi.

  1. My name is Amy and I am starting nursing school in the fall. I am 29 and the mother of two beautiful girls. I am currently working at home doing medical transcription. I am tired of sitting at a desk all day and need some excitement. I can not wait to start school. Is it as painful as I have heard?
    I just wanted to say hello to everyone and hope I don't quit before I ever get started.

    Good on ya, Amy. If it's excitement you want, you can certainly find it in nursing. And frustration. And Reward. And Joy. And tears. And Comrades. And people-that-you-hope-you'll-never-have-to-talk-to-again-ever. Mainly you'll find yourself part of a community.

    Not to mention travel. I've been a nurse from coast-to-coast and Alaska, too. Couldn't have done that as a computer programmer...

    Yeah, nursing school can be a Canine-mother, but just persevere and you'll do fine. It will be an experience that will stay with you the rest of your life. The first of many. Good luck and hang in there. It's worth the hassle. (even when, in ten years, you're saying to yourself "WHY did I do this?" Even then, you'll know why)

    Thanks it was either nursing school or law school and I decided nursing would be more rewarding than being a theif. :chuckle Just kidding in case any one knows someone that is a lawyer. I have alway been interested in learning about medical information.
    My aunt is a nurse and has been for 14 years. I have seen her go through every stage from excitement to why did I do this but, she would not be happy doing anything else. I just hope I can be as good as she is. The only thing is she does not take anything from the doctor's but her patient's love her.

    LOL.... In fact a friend of mine that is primarily a dialysis nurse does legal consulting on the side and is looking to get further into it. See, you can do almost anything as a nurse. Me?: I'm a Nurse-computergeekboy :-)
