    Hey fellow NC nurses:
    my name is Crissy and i am currently in Wilmington NC. I am a new RN but have been an LPN for 4 years. I work on a Stepdown unit at the local hospital - I absolutely love pulmonary nursing!
    I am also new to this website and so far It's great! The introduction idea was a good one. I look forward to talking with all of you. a side note ......

    Isabel has landed and minimal damage to eastern NC was sustained considering what could have been. good luck to those of you who haven't yet dealt with her.

    Rock you like a hurricane!!!!!

    This is for the guy that is interested in psych nursing. I would love to talk to you as soon as you graduate or before. I am the Nurse Recruiter at Cherry Hospital in Goldsboro. We are one of the state psych facilities so we have the state benefits. You really don't need to get a year of med surg before you come. We have a good training program and we also have a medical unit that you can get experience on.
    Maybe I will be seeing you. I attend Craven and we do our 5th semester (the fall) Psych rotation at Cherry.

    My name is Jen and I am an ADN student in Fayetteville, NC. I graduate in May 2004 and soon after will start an online BSN program at UNC-Wilmington. I hope to work in the ICU after graduation and then attend CRNA school in the future. I am a military wife with no children, except my "furkids" Bud (basset hound), Sam (bunny) and Lola (BIG bunny- over 9lbs!) . It would be nice to talk to other NC nurses. Hope we can get some good discussions going. Hope everyone has a great week!

    Hey Jen,
    I just graduated from UNC-W with my BSN and I wanted to wish you good luck. That bunch can be crazy and unorganized so just be patient and stick with it. Good luck!

    I'm baaaaaaaaaaaack !!! your Va. neighbor ... BUT... am beginning orientation to medsurge at a "smallish" rural hopsital in NC next month to enable me to work there PRN status along with my current employment in dialysis here in Va. In the process of obtaining my NC licensure by endorsement... so now does that legitimize my sharing your NC forum with you guys? I do love having the best of both worlds!

    I was just going to ask for you opinion on dialysis. I am really interested in that area, and I just took a new job on a renal/med/surg floor where they do PD with a specific area for HD. I was just wondering if you got burnt out fast? Any advice would be great! Thanks!
