  4. While You are In Here..I May As Well Try To Go To The Bathroom....

  5. What to do??...

  10. Help! Will i even be able to find a job when i move to Denver?
    Six years is good experience. I would think if you start applying now and express a willingness/desire to earn your BSN you would be reasonably marketable.

  11. Would you want your child to become a Nurse???
    If they wanted to be, yes I would. But then, I would support pretty much anything my kids are willing to devote constructive, motivated time and effort to. I am too busy chasing my own dreams to...

    Yep, it would not look great. It is unlikely another hospital will be interested in you until you have 1-2 years experience. Go ahead and apply. The level of interest you get will be your answer.
