    Good morning........what a great idea. I live in New Hampshire but close to the Mass border so I will be checking out both forums. I have a year of pre-reqs to take some will be @ a community college in Mass, and some will be @ a NH state university. I enjoy reading the boards, and actually learning from so many of you what nursing has to offer. Thank you for so much ecouragement.

    Hi I just joined here I am starting the LNA class withthe hopes ot continue on to RN. I have ayr of psych credits from Northeastern adn I went to Elizabeth Grady I worked for CIGNA and I am horrified at how the patients care and insurance billing practices are forced to waste time and it seems that caring and business have no business in the same sentence!
    I hope to pass the LNA class I am sponsored by a LTC facility they will pay the course fee then I hope to go on ot the TECH INSTITue. IN NH we do not have cmty colleges.
    I was hoping to hear from soemone who started out as a LNA?

    I currently live in good ole massachusetts, but I've been recently considering to the Keene NH area (so damn cute up there). What does anybody hear about the Cheshire Medical Center that's in Keene? I know that they're affiliated with Dartmouth-Hitchcock, but that's about all I know. Are the nurses happy there? Can anybody give me the inside scoop? I'd appreciate it! Thanks!

    I live here in Keene, and yes it is pretty dam cute here. As far as the nurses being happy...well as with every place it mainly depends on the people that you end up working with. It is almost a hit or miss.

    One of my physician's is a doc at Cheshire Med Center. My first two babies were born there also. It's a great hospital. I know that the nurses I've spoken to there really like it, and being affiliated with DHMC, there is a great benefits package.

    They've just redone, or are still redoing, the entire hospital and clinic. Big project! It looks great though. Southern NH is really a nice area. I've been here all of my life, and though the snow gets old, I still love it here!

    I was a CNA (i was licenced too but they called us CNA's about 7 yrs ago) I worked as one til my first child was born and then I stopped working outside the home to be a mom. I have 2 young children and I am finishing up my first yr of nursing school. I love it and I do think I learned a lot from working with patients as a CNA/LNA :hatparty:

    Hi Rebecca. I started out as a CNA ten yhears ago after I had my daughter. I then went to nursing school two years later for my LPN. I think the experience of working as an LNA first is sso important, and it makes you appreciate LNAs more. I have been working for the same LTC company for eight years now, and have even been an assistant DON. I am currently a unit manager. Keep going with your education, you will never regret it.
