    hi Robin,

    Good to meet you, I'm from Fort Wayne, IU nursing sounds like it has a very good program, sounds challenging, checked it out at one time...[hanging head shamefully] ):imbar I will have a Purdue degree when I'm finished! (I come from an "IU" family )

    Welcome Jillian, I've been to IWU quite a few times, back when my best friend went there a several years ago, there was only a taco bell in the gas station...yikes! Marion sure has grown since then! What hospital will you get to do clinicals at?

    See you guys on the board!

    Hi, Robin and other Hoosiers!

    I graduated in 1995 from IU School of Nursing in Indianapolis and am currently working in a cath lab in Columbus, IN.

    Robin, are you in the ADN or BSN program? Just wondering if any of my old instructors are still around.

    Just my experience (you didn't ask, but I feel like sharing!) -- I have worked the big hospitals (Methodist and Wishard) and the small (Columbus Regional) and prefer the small! The staffing is not as desperate AND people are actually nice to each other!

    Hugs and best wishes in your new career!
