Hello everyone, I am a GVN in texas waiting to take my boards, and I wanted to get some information and opinions from other nurses. I got into nursing because of the love of helping and healing, but after my professional course during the last phase of school, where we would on clinical site, simulate being DON, charge nurses and case managers, I fell in love with this side of nursing and health care. before nursing school I did hold a lower level managment position at a large retail store, so I do have some experiance in those roles. My class mates think im crazy for wanting to do this over the other positions. I have a passion for making things work right and correcting problems that inhibit patient care. I know a few LVNs that got these type of positions right out of school, but im find just a handful, usually requiring 3-5 years exp. I found my passion in the field and I want to starting asap. please let me know what you all think!
