Four years ago this month, I decided to join allnurses. I'd been lurking for several months. I had 11 years of experience as an LPN, and thought I could provide some insight to other nurses and student nurses who shared their stories and questions. When I passed the NCLEX-RN in 2014, other members congratulated and celebrated with me. Every day, I learn something new from other members, and I truly feel that allnurses is a resource that has made me a better nurse. My favorite allnurses memory is how we all came together, in the fall of 2014, to offer our support and prayers for the two Dallas-area nurses who became ill with Ebola while caring for their patient in a Texas hospital. While the media was criticizing them and scrutinizing every detail of their lives, we stood together to offer encouragement and hope. I love allnurses, and it's true...Nurses Rock!

Congrats! I've been a member since before I was an lvn or an RN, I have 8 years as an RN and sometimes it's fun to look at those early posts.

This is a wonderful place to learn and share and commiserate with our struggles. It's been 15 years since I joined. I love being able to learn about what's happening across the country and about the different type of nursing jobs out there. This is just such a great resource! Priceless!
