Nursing Student - Graduating in December 2004!

  1. Hello! My name is Kim. I have been attending a community college in Florida and will be graduating with my RN in december. I'm very excited about getting started with my nursing career. I am very interested in specializing Neonatal Nursing. Maybe even OB or Pediactrics. They kind of go together. I'm very happy I found this site so maybe I can get some good tips and advice from other practicing nurses.

    Critical care. I'm hoping to do my senior practicum in an ED in the fall and will probably work in the ICU where I'm currently a tech after graduation.

    Hi, I am a nursing student also, who will graduate in December 2004~ I just discovered this site, and am very excited about it. I work on Mother/Baby for now, will do my practicum there, and am promised a position there after the NCLEX. . . My long term goal is to be a nurse midwife, or a pediatric nurse practitioner. . . not sure, but will stay with women's health and peds!

    Hi,
    I am going to a Technical College and will graduate with an Associate Degree in Nursing. So far I really don't know where I want to work, I like OB, Meg/Surg, PACU, and long-term care. I am one the the youngest in my class, I will be 21 on the 17th!!!!

    Congradulations to you all! I just graduated from a community college in May 2004. I have my associates in nursing. I am planning to take the NCLEX on June 14th. I highly recommend taking a review course. I am currently taking the Kaplan Course and it has shown me how to answer the questions that will be asked on the licensure exam. It is all about test taking skills. I was weighing the options of NICU or ICU. I was offered jobs in both, but decided to take the ICU position in September. The hospital seems to have a great fellowship program. I wish you all the best of luck! December is not too far around the corner.

    Congratulation to all of you. I'm researching all the childrens hospitals in North Florida trying to get into NICU. Its such a popular area I hope I can get in somewhere. I have heard the hardest part is getting in. Good luck on your NCLEX exam. Its so nice of them to make it harder for us but I heard its only like 2% of the questions that will be harder.

    I am right there with you. We are both graduating in December and this site has been so helpful to me. I've been getting tips from the NICU nurses on how to get into a NICU unit when I graduate. Everybody has been so helpful. Good luck with your last semester. I can't wait until graduation. It has been a long hard road for me in nursing school but definitly well worth it.
