Advice entering as a new nurse?

Nurses Career Support


Hello everyone! I'm 32 years old and am about to take a pretty big step. I've been working as a paralegal for the past 8 years. I took night classes to get my BSN and finally, after graduating 3 years ago, have passed my NCLEX. :yeah: It's such a relief to know that now I can start to head in a new direction. (I'd eventually like to combine the legal and medical fields.)

Can anyone help me with the 'what happens next' part?? Like I said, it's been 3 years since I've even stepped foot in a hospital, so I'm very nervous. Do hospitals have refresher type courses for new nurses? Will I get my license in the mail, or will it simply be on file with the BoN? I'm very excited..but very anxious!!
