I dont know if you know but on the sfcc nursing website there is some reading that is gonna be required fo us. Girl I have looked at it but thats it.LOL. I will buckle down and study it today. My cousin says we will have to know this so she told me if I wanted an early start this is basically the foundation.

Butterfly: I already did that whole package. It was very interesting, and I learned a lot.

Currently I am reading: Fluids and Electrolytes made Incredibly Easy.

I try to be as prepared as possible. I am a bit anal when it comes to, well just about everything. Organization and preparation is the key to a happy and successful life, well at least in my eyes.

The book I am reading is good. I have quite a bit left, but I also have quite a bit of time to finish it up. Hopefully I will be done by next weekend.

Nothing wrong with that, I wish I was more organized! I see you want to do PEDs, so do I was thinking either doing mother baby or doing the PICU. Do you know where you would possibly work?

Most likely PICU. I volunteered with the Pediatric Congenital Heart Center last year, so I did rounds in the PICU. I will work at Shands, in the PICU after graduation. My mom wants me to just go to the Peds Ward following graduation so I get some organizational skills when it comes to juggling patients, but both myself and the physicians I rounded with think I will do wonderful just going into the PICU. It is intense and taxing, but I love it.

However, you talked about Mother and Baby...I hate Mother and Baby and LD. I want nothing to do with that, so it is yours for the taking, lol.

Awww.. c'mon you don't know what you're missing!LOL!! Im sure I will change my mind at least 20 times when nursing school starts but I just love babies so thats why I said Mother Baby. I'm getting over the jitters and now Im more excited and ready for the two years to be over. What I really want to do is work in a Peds ER but of course we don't have that here in Gainesville so the PICU is the next best thing.

We do have a group that's primary job in the ED is to treat peds. ED and PICU are two completely different places. I don't think there is any comparison. If you like babies, I think Mother's and Babies would be best. The PICU is also really small? Are you planning on trying to get a job at Shands when you are done?

Yeah, I already work there in the ED. You're right there is no comparing the two. I think in St Petersburg there is an Childrens hospital with an Peds ED, so thats where I will eventually like to go. But I am definitely gonna consider Mother Baby whenever we do our rotation because when I had my son I had the best nurse and she was so encouraging to me and let me know that she graduated nursing school with 3 young children. I was like whoa!

That is pretty cool. I couldn't imagine having children, let alone going to school while I had them and I'm a nanny. How old is your son? Your husband is going to have his hands full when you start in August.

How did you do in your pre-req classes? Do you feel ready for nursing school? Academically how do you think you will do?

I don't recommend anyone have kids until after you have a good income and are much holder then I was, which was at age 20. If I didn't have the confidence or the support of my family I wouldn't be able to do this. I did really well in my prereqs and correqs actually. I completed my AA and I can't say that it was easy or hard but I am glad I did it. I'm as ready as the next person I think. With the exception of you!!!LOL!!! From your post I can tell you are very organized and stay on top of things. I would be doing it if I didn't think I could succeed and I know I will, its will be verrrrrrrrrrrrrrry hard! I know a couple of girls who got in last year got pregnant and now are gonna be graudating with you and me. Again I don't reccomend it and I am in no way saying you know having babies or children during nursing school is easy but defintiely doable. He is five by the way.

I can't believe all these people get pregnant and have babies while in nursing school. I just don't understand why. It is very hard for me to comprehend. I also think people don't have an understanding of how truly difficult it is to raise a child. I don't know. I am still 10 years away from kids...
