    I started right out of RN school into the ICU, but I went thru a critical care nursing residency program at my hospital. Everything worked out for me. I wouldn't recommend it unless they have very structured training program.

    Good Luck!

    Any male nurse's out there??????????
    Hey,I am a male nursing student,working on my RN.I wish to get into travel nursing,because of the change of scenery, and pay. I wouldlike to work in ER.
    To that I would like to ask you guys if y'all have heard somthing to this rumor:travel nurses may have a chance to work in Iraq :angryfire ,due to a shortage of military nurses?,working 6 month rotations,for an outragious sallery and benifits package?If any one has heard somthing to that,please let me know and your oppinions about that are welcome.James

    I figured lucrative travel jobs would be in those few countries with loads of money like Saudi Arabia. I bet there is plenty of nurse volunteer work in Iraq.

    Not that I have heard, but with the amount of contractors over there, it really wouldn't surprise me. As far as I know, we are not back filling Military positions in Iraq with civilian nurses. Operational concerns always outweigh the needs of the stateside hospitals so I doubt there is a "shortage" of military nurses in Iraq to support our troops.
    But I could be wrong!

    Hey guys, good to join you. Where are some more of those jokes Crumbwannabe? Are you still listening in KarenG?
    How about bass fishing, any enthusiast out there? I personally fish bass tournaments all over the central and southern US and love it.

    Long time lurker here. Nice to see this form. Hmmm. Nursing, from a male point of view. I give it two snaps!

    Jeez, I guess I'm dating myself, with the In Living Color reference.:uhoh21:

    Anywho, stuck up in the far upper right corner of the 48 states, just south of Canada. Been an RN for almost 8 years now, a second career. Spent 12 years in the US Army first, then went back to college under the Montgomery GI Bill.

    RN, associate degree here, just graduated in June. I'm in central Ohio atm. I've been a medic in the Ohio Army Nat'l Guard, was an LPN for a short stint while in RN school, and a nursing assistant on and off since graduating high school in '90. Good to see a nursing forum just for the guys!
