1. when are all of you graduating ? I graduate in 9 weeks and counting. Finally in single digits. when you start working as an RN what are you planning on spending your hard earned money on? I have so many bills to get caught up on first, then I am going to get cable and tv in my room. Dare I dream
    I am soooooo excited. I start my preceptorship in two weeks. Just can't wait.

    Ahhh graduation...the nicest words I can here at this point I think that one word is what motivates me right now..LOL

    I graduate in 5 weeks and counting! Its been a long 4 years and I am ready to be done.

    I honestly havent given a lot of thought to what I will spend my paycheck on, I dont like to count my chickens before they to speak. I am excited that it will be additional income, my husband has been the one bringing home the checks since I started school. I will be able to do more for and with my family. We want to save more and pay a few bills off and our big goal is to eventually trade my car in for something new.

    BUT I have to graduate and pass boards first

    I start my internship in June and am excited too! Best of luck to you and everyone else graduating! Its a great feeling!!

    Graduation is on May 10th but the final exam is April 29th. I'm skipping the graduation but I'm going to the pinning. I can't wait to start working so I can buy a house.

    Congrats and good luck to all. Any good nurse remembers graduating and being new. Just do two things to help you in your glorious future. Keep your own malpractice insurance but don't tell the facility that you work for that you have it. And your career is what you make of it. Learn from others and never be afraid to ask a question if you are unsure. No question is stupid. Especially if it saves someones life.

    Graduation is May 17th. Didnt think it would ever get here. This has been the longest year.
    I am so ready to get done and start working again. Not having to tell the kids when they ask for some little thing no there isnt enough money this week will be sooo nice.

    I really do want to take a week and take the kids away for a vacation though. Dont know if that will be possible yet or not.
