New to this forum

  1. Hi there...

    My name is Karen Smith. I have worked ICU for 12 years. I am currently employeed at a 800 bed level 1 trauma center in the ICU. My current role is as the night shift Clinical Nurse Educator. I took this position in November last year and it is my first position in unit leadership. It has been quite a challenge transitioning from the bedside role.

    I have enjoyed browsing this site since recently finding it. I like the idea of being able to network in this type of forum and look forward to getting to know some of you around here.

    Karen Smith, RN, BS, CCRN

    hey -
    this is a great sight!
    I am a new nursing student who is starting the program this summer. I am working toward my BSN. I am nervous, but very excited to finally start working with patients after having my nose buried in chemistry and biology books for three years!

    I stumbled onto this site, and found it to be interesting and informative. Also, it seems a lot of support between nurses - which i'm sure I will need in the near future.

    Thanks again for a great site - talk to you all soon......
