KY nurses and students STAND UP. What part of KY are you from.

  1. I am new to this forum and very excited. Just want to know where everyone's from and what they do.

    Peace and love.

    I'm from Lexington and I'm starting the ADN program at KCTCS in 2 weeks! I've got about 5 years of experience as a CNA in Tele/ICU and ER.

    Not anytime soon. I'm still in school in Lexington and I'm contracted to a local hospital for 2 years after graduation. But, my wife and I talk about moving at some point, we've both lived her all our lives. And we like Louisville, so...

    The person who works at Ephraim... how do you like it? I'm getting ready to start working there, on the third floor. I'm an RN.

    My story. =) Raised in Louisville, went to Morehead State for five years and got an art degree. Moved to Frankfort in '95, after graduating from Morehead. Went back to school for nursing in '99. Went to work at Frankfort Regional in '99. Worked there for seven years altogether; four as an aide and three as an RN, all in med/surge. Moved to Lawrenceburg in 2000. Quit Frankfort Regional in 2006 to try psychiatric nursing. Now I'm tired of doing psych full time, after only one year of doing it, (I work at Central State) and I'm going back to med surge. Gonna do psych PRN.

    Hi again 1OldDinosaurRN!! I worked atEMRMC as a PCT about 2 yrs ago and loved it. But I haven't decided if I want to work there again. I think I will probably put in at all of the surrounding hospitals and see what choices I have.

    Hey guys, I'm on the other end of the spectrum. I'm a brand new nurse, working in the CTVU at St. Joseph in good old Lexington. I originally went to UK in 98 and got a Psych degree, worked retail management for a few years, then went to LCC (now Bluegrass) in 2005 to get my ADN. I am about as green as they get, but I freaking love what I do. Hope everyone is having a great week!
