    Got my RN-BSN in Houston, Texas last year. My plans are to relocate to Ontario Canada in April (2006) after I get married.
    Good! WE NEED YOU! Congrats on graduating and your pending nuptials!
    I graduated with my Bsc Pharm in 1996 from Wayne State University (Michigan)-practiced pharmacy for 5 years and returned to get my BScN and have been LDRP nursing ever since. I worked in San Francisco for one year and now work in Ontario (full-time) and Michigan (contingent).

    Hey SuperFlyRN,
    Just wondering about your previous pharmacy experiences, why did you
    switch careers? did you find pharmacy extremely boring? (were you doing clinical/hospital pharmacy or retail?)

    thanks!

    I briefly did community and than hospital which I really liked. There was a lot more patient involvement and teaching involved. When I went into pharmacy I was deciding on nursing or pharmacy and (at the time) pharmacists were in great demand and I had already done some previous pharmacy technician experience-so I figured, might as well. Upon seeing the fabulous nurses on the units I figured a change was due. It is nice having both-I can draw on a lot from my previous experience. Thanks for your interest:wink2:
