    Urban dictionary entry for the Inland Empire, it's what we in SoCal call "The 909."

    Begin orientation as a new graduate critical care nurse. Work full time, go to school full time to earn my BSN in three semesters, find an apartment, and save my money. I will also work to become the best critical care nurse that I can. My two main goals will be learning to practice independently in the ICU setting and earning my BSN online.

    I hopefully will finish up in May. My immediate plans for after graduation are to get my diploma, buy some nice new bedding, eat a crazy big meal, and sleep, and by sleep I mean sleep for as close to 24 hours as humanly possible. After that, I'll follow up with 1 to 2 entire days doing nothing but reconnecting with all the non-nursing students & family who have been parlayed. Finally, I'll spend the other 27 days or so studying for boards.

    But, oh how I crave the thought of a night of sleep without having some sort of nursing school nightmare where I have to pack wounds in a hosp-fish patient while being watched by a large carp (instructor) who has incredibly large eyes on each side of her body allowing me no where safe to hide ^_^

    Hopefully Land a job in a Hospital ER and gain an abundance of skills/experience. Then Work as a Travel Nurse for about 5 years and live in cities such as Miami, Chicago, Los Angelos and maybe do some abroad work! im hoping that nursing will change my life for the better!

    Now I have the time to think for myself after a crazy first semester of nursing school. Pay of my loans while helping my brother who's going to college once I graduate. Start saving up money to buy a house or a car and begin my retirement plan (no harm in starting really early right?). Career wise, I would like to work either in the ER, ICU, or Pediatrics. Try to soak as much experience as I can and see if I want to further my education like grad school cuz who knows? my goals today can be the same or totally different in the next 5 to 10 years.

    Nice dreams guys! I definitely am going to move myself and my family out of the inner city. Buy a new car. Donate to various charities and church. Keep my wardrobe updated (gotta keep my swag tight! lol)

    I am hoping I can just find a job. We may move back to the Bay Area. Want to go directly into the MSN program at UoP.
    That's the plan, Stan!

    In my most optimistic dreams I'd like to be accepted into a graduate program either here in New Zealand or possibly back home in Australia, specifically melbourne.

    Seeing as most graduate programs rotate you through two placements I'd love a Theatre placement and a placement in Oncology (seeing as I've spent considerable time in Oncology it holds a special place to me and would love to work with those who have taken care of me in the past).

    I'm keeping an open mind though, I'll see what I enjoy as progress through nursing school.

    But realisticly I'll take what I can get once I graduate.
