    Hello everyone! I live in Corbin which is in Southeastern Kentucky and currently work at Baptist Regional Medical Center. I am new to the medical field. I graduated from EKU in 2003 with a degree in education and taught high school for 5 years. I decided that teaching was not where I wanted to spend the rest of my life. I think I was bored with being in the same classroom day after day teaching the same thing over and over again. So...after 5 years in the classroom I quit and now am working as a CNA at the hospital. I will be starting school in January to get another degree and be an RN.

    I am so glad I found this thread... I have a BA in Communication from UK but recently have decided I want to go to school for nursing. I am looking for 2 year programs in the Cincy/NKY area so that I can get out, start work, and maybe complete a BSN later if I want to.

    I am living on my own with rent and bills so I'm wondering - how do/did you do it?!?! I considered an accelerated BSN program at NKU, but I'm thinking there is NO way I'd be able to make any money to pay bills. I'm looking at Good Sam and Christ, but I'm nowhere close to applying for either because I honestly have NO clue about the process, what school will be like, if I'll be able to work, etc. I've also heard good things about Mt. St. Joe, but also heard it was tres expensive. I'm not sure if any of the Northern Kentucky community colleges are worth anything. ANY info would be appreciated!!

    Hello.

    I also will be moving back to my home state of Florida in a little over a year. Im in nursing school here at MSU, at the Mt Sterling branch.
    Im not sure if I will be going to Brandon/Tampa area or Naple/Ft Myers area.
    What does it take to become licensed in Florida? What part of Fl are you in. (I'm jealous, espicially during the winter. LOL)

    I'm currently going to nursing school at Big Sandy (used to be Prestonsburg Community College) in Prestonsburg, but I got my CNA at Mayo in Paintsville last year. I work for a private doctor's office doing reception and insurance billing.

    Time for an update! =)

    Last time I posted in this thread was close to five years ago. I worked at
    Ephraim McDowell then. Since then, I have worked exclusively in the Psych
    and LTC areas. I've worked at:

    The Ridge BHS, Lexington, March 2009-October 2010
    Heritage Hall Health and Rehab, Lawrenceburg, Oct. 2010 to Aug. 2011
    Eastern State Hospital (for NR), Aug 2011 to Present (when I can!)
    Fountain Circle, Winchester, May 2012 to Present

    I've had far too many different jobs in only 9 years as an RN.

    Still living in Lawrenceburg. Almost 12 years now!

    I'm still in Radcliff, still searching for a job. Applying here and there, casting a pretty wide net even though I have no idea where some of the towns are exactly in KY LOL. I'm looking at smaller, rural hospitals as well as the larger one. I'm even researching jobs with the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

    I am almost done with my BSN (woot!) The reason I'm excited about this is because it has taken me 20 years to do :-)

    I'm from south central KY, in my 3rd semester at Bowling Green Technical College, a KCTCS school. I've just applied to two ADN Programs, deadline is Sept. 15. So now I play the waiting game! *crosses fingers* I applied to the BGTC program, as well as Hopkinsville Community College. I'm hoping for Bowling Green because I really do not want to have to drive 90 mins one way every day for school, but I will if I have to! lol. I've got my CNA as well, I believe I am going to try to find a CNA job at a local hospital soon. Just pretty nervous about leaving an office job that I've had for 11 years for something new, especially while I'm still in school. Good Luck to All!

    Hey there... I think you should also consider ECTC in Elizabethtown, KY. Im from Glasgow but attend in Etown which is about an hr drive for me but well worth it. Its an awesome school with topnotch instructors and clinical sites....
