    I'm getting ready to start classes at Northwest State June 2nd but I won't start clinicals until January or August of 2009. I've been accepted in the LPN program and am just waiting to be seated for clinicals. I plan on starting work after graduation and then taking the LPN to RN bridging course Northwest State offers. I'm very excited but very nervous as I've been out of school for 12 years!!

    edit to add: I forgot to say that my ultimate goal when I'm done with the RN is to work in OB, PEDS, or NICU but we have just a small hospital so I'm not sure how likely that is to happen!

    I live in Oxford, Ohio but I work in the Cincinnati area.

    I have done a wide variety of nursing but I currently work in an 18 bed ICU.

    I have been a nurse for 11 years and I have loved every day of it!!!

    I am finishing (finally) my BSN and doing the Master's Bridge.

    I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up.

    I hear ya about not knowing what you want to be when you grow up. So many different specialties interest me. I love mental health and I want to go into Psychatric Nursing, but Peds interests me too.
