Seriously, it was your lifestyle for a very long time, and it's hard to let it go.

May 20, '02Occupation: new grad - start in telemetry in August- Joined: May '02; Posts: 18I also graduated Saturday (yeah) but we had over an inch of snow. Couldn't believe it. They said it hadn't rain for over 20 years during graduation and my luck we had a snow storm. I don't start my job as a nurse until August 5th then it is a 8 week training program. Good luck to all new grads finding the right job

And to all the other new grads! Great feeling isn't it!
I am in a position to see and feel a bit of the joy and exitement once a year, when my own students get their diplom, it is great to enjoy that too!!
Take care and don't worry about the boards, Renee

Savor this moment in the sun (or rain or snow, depending on your geography!). It's been 8 years since I graduated & began the hardest work I've ever loved (before I became a mom, at least).
Best of luck on your boards!
All the best,
