I really should introduce myself...
0Mar 7, '10 by Scottish_nurseI don't usually forget to introduce myself but I feel it was rude of me not introducing myself:
My name is Sarah, I'm a 23 year old Scot.
I'm regularly over in MS, been all over the US its like my 2nd home. I am currently in my 2nd year of my BSN at the university of the West of Scotland (partnered with Mercer and Valdosta universities in GA.)
My fiance is a native Mississippian from the Tupelo area but recently moved from Scotland to Lowndes county, MS. I plan on moving to MS once I graduate to finish off the requirements that are needed to become eligible to sit the NCLEX then I'll go from there
How do you find nursing in MS? Is the pay good for the state and is it quite easy to specialize in something that you enjoy?
I really quite fancy doing ER nursing but I am pretty open minded.
Lookin' forward to hearing from yall.
