Roll Call - Introduce Yourselves, Texans!

  1. Go ahead, break the ice, and introduce oneself!

    I guess I'll start. I'm originally from California, and have resided in Texas since late 2005. I've been an LVN since January 2006, and I currently work in the rehab section of a skilled nursing facility in Fort Worth. Since August 2006, I have earned 38 college credit hours worth of prerequisite classes to be applied toward one of several local LVN-to-RN bridge programs.

    OK, here's me:

    Born and raised in South Texas, graduated as a Paramedic in 2001, and as a nurse in Feb. 07. Working in the ER now, but starting to peek around and see what else is out there. I'm interested in PACU, OR, and flight nursing. I guess that's about it!

    I was born and raised in East Texas. Graduated as LVN February 14, 2007. Have been working as an LVN at local state mental hospital in my area since graduation, where I've worked as a psychiatric nurse's assistant 3.5 years prior to getting my LVN license. Just finished my pre-reqs for RN and will start an RN-BSN program in the spring at local university. My plans are to go into perioperative nursing....and move
    away from East Texas...

    Hi, I was born and raised in the Houston area and have lived there my whole life. I just finished my first semester of a BSN program and am so excited about the next two weeks of not "thinking"...

    I just got married this summer to the most amazing man on the planet, we have one child (though most of you would consider him a "dog") with the cutest black curly hair and little waggling tail...

    I love Texas, the people and the weather... and I wouldn't want to live anywhere else!

    Hey all!
    Born in Berlin, Germany, raised in Galveston and Houston. My family has been residing in Austin for nearly 5 years now. Have a 6 year old boy who was also born in Berlin. I got engaged in May of this year, and will be getting married October 26th, 2008.
    Next semester I will be wrapping up A&PII and Micro to complete the nursing courses needed to fully focus on clinicals. I will be applying to 4 programs, and hopefully starting next fall.

    Hi I am from Texas; I have 3 kids (13, 10 and 5) and live at Saginaw. I have a first degree in financial economics and this is a second chance to change carrier for a better life and also do what I enjoy doing most, which is helping others. I currently work as a PCA with a local agency and love my job, I did this to help me gain experience working with sick people, and yes, this has given me experience in working with Alzheimer's, paraplegic and Parkinson clients. I just got accepted into TCC and will start this spring; I would like to be a CRNA eventually. More power to nurses. :smilecoffeecup:

    Born in California, got to Texas as quick as I could (about 7). Went to h.s. in El Paso, went to Texas A&M.

    Whooooooooooooooooooppppppppp!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!

    Joined the Army. After time in Cali, was sent back to good old Texas. Sadly, I am now an expatriate living in the DC Area. Going for my BSN in Maryland. I may move back but my heart is torn between Texas and Cali.
