Anyone in Tennessee??? - page 6
Just wondering if there were any nurses or nursing students here from Tennessee? Thanks, Sandy.... Read More
Nov 21, '02WOW!! I am in TN too! I work at the VA in Nashville right by Vanderbilt. That is a fine VA hospital and I am proud to be a part of it. The VA system has some fantastic programs for people who want to get into nursing and especially RNs with a BSN.
I went to Cumberland University in Lebanon to get my BSN. I thought it was an excellent program and that school is growing by leaps and bounds!
I am so glad to know that there are other TN nurses here! I lived in Maryville for about a year and just adore east TN. If it wasn't for my folks needing me closer, I would live there.
Nov 21, '02Ok, then, spring it is. We'll pick a date a little later, I suppose.
The next question is, where do we want to do this? My first suggestion would be Nashville, as it is centrally located.
When I lived there, my favorite place to eat was The Spaghetti Factory on 2nd Ave. Unless things have changed drastically, it still has good food, despite being surrounded by tons of touristy things.
By the way, I rec'd my BSN from TSU & worked at Vandy. All of the nursing schools in the area produce good nurses...I just don't know which one was less of a pain to deal with...aren't they all pains in the rear?
Nov 21, '02Hey jdomep...You will have to come to the speedway and look at the lights they have displayed. GORGEOUS!!!!!
Nov 25, '02I am shaking my head at the Christmas post. I am sure there are parts of the south that this applies to, but the southerners I know here are pretty refined, in public, at least.

I shake my head, too, when non-Southerners post anything about the South or Southerners.
We Southerners know that these folks exist. I've taken care of some of these folks and even shared the same neighborhood with a few of them. However, we don't invite them over for dinner...nor do/did we ever consider dating them.
Non-Southerners lump us all into one group. We know that there are distinct cultural differences between coastal vs. mountaineers, Tennesseans, Alabamians (sp?), Mississippians, Georgians, North & South Carolinians, Virginians, natives of Louisiana, & Texans. Even we Tennesseans know that there are distinct differences between folks from all 3 parts of the state!
My opinion of the Santa Clause thingy is this:
Have a great holiday!
Nov 26, '02I live in a VERY small town in East Tennessee about 70 miles northeast of Knoxville.
I graduate (HOPEFULLY ) from nursing school in 2004!
Nov 28, '02Y'all are making me so homesick my heart hurts! I was born in Memphis, raised in Jackson, and most recently lived in Franklin. Those of you in the area, do you know the O'More School of Design? Great, beautiful school- I graduated from there with a degree in Interior Design and immediately decided that I wanted to do something that mattered much more to the human race than installing French drain systems. I have been imprisoned here in New Mexico for 6 years, and reading all of your posts has made me even more determined to get home. A Tennessee Allnurse get-together is a great idea!!!!!
I was so glad to read all of your posts- you are giving me great ideas of where to work when I finally get back home.
Go Vols! Burn Opry Mills! Send me some country ham!

Sorry if I offended anyone. I am also from Tennessee and I thought it was cute.
:imbar I was probably being a little sensitive, myself, MRed94. I see so many of these things floating around in cyberspace that I have grown weary of them, especially when my non-Southern friends share them with me.
Please forgive my outburst and, if possible, join us this spring in Tennessee!
Nov 30, '02ditto what Joy said....I get tired of the ribbing I take from non southerners going back to my early 20s when my ex was in the army and we were living in germany, and met some folks from california and I swear they looked to see if we were wearing shoes when we said we were from tenn
