Hello, I'm excited to be starting @ Walden U 3.4.13. I thought it would be fun to do a roll call and for us to support eachother throughout the program. Start by stating how long you've been a nurse,specialty you are in, why BSN is important to you, how are classes going so far and feel free to add anything else. I'll go first.
-I've been a nurse for four years, 3 years LPN and one year of RN. I've worked in LTC, ICU and school nursing. My goal is to land a job in postpartum, this is my dream job. Getting a BSN is important to because I do want to be up to date with EBP and it seems that hospitals and facilities are requiring RNS to have BSNs. After my BSN, I plan on getting my MSN in education ( Lord willing).
I start on 3/4 and I'm totally overwhelmed already. I have printed out the syllabus and assigments and some of the articles to try to prepare for monday. My biggest challenge will be writing papers so I'll be spending alot of time in the online writing lab.
Anyway, once again I'm excited. Hope the program goes by fast.
Wishing all of you the best.
