First and foremost congratulations ! Do what ever makes you happy !

I want to go on a cruise or something. I graduate in December from ADN.

When I graduated from LPN two years ago I got married and went on honey moon two weeks after pinning, which was also a cruise

Just have fun !

Congratulations.

I'm graduating a year from now and we're going on a family cruise next August. (Now I HAVE to graduate on time, otherwise it's not a graduation celebration) We haven't ever been on a family vacation before and after everyone has made sacrifices so I could go back to school, we all deserve the celebration.

On the smaller scale, I think we'll just have a dinner with my family and my parents to celebrate right after school's over.

I am going to visit my sister and new nephew in 2 weeks. Also going to drive up to see family I have in washington. We lost our brother in January and with school I didn't really have time to cope with it all, she just named my new nephew after him. My daughter had. to go to my parents for 6 weeks so I could do my practicum so she is going with me, it will just be a mommy and daughter trip. My husband bought me the tickets as a graduation gift. I already took my NCLEX so other than that I will just be looking for a job. I am also getting LASIK next week.

I haven't graduated yet, but should be in December. We're planning on spending a week or so at Disney World after our ceremony to celebrate. We go nearly every year anyway, but this gives me a chance to celebrate and even get a look at housing and job opportunities in the area.

Graduation was last Friday and Sunday morning my hubby and I got on the road to head to the beach for a week! After we get home this weekend I'll start studying for the nclex, but boy has it been nice just hanging out and doing whatever I want!!
