    Hey guys! I've been a long-time lurker on this site, and finally decided to take the plunge and join the site. Let me just say - FANTASTIC.

    But anyway, I'm Anna. I am 20 years old, and I am starting my nursing classes in fall, finally. I've been on the dreaded wait list for nearly 2 and a half years at my community college, and I am both super excited and scared to death about clinicals. is my homepage, homies!!!

    Hey Anna....I hear ya about clinicals. I am also very nervous - not sure what to expect and just hope I do ok without mistakes. I am taking the summer off as I have been in school three summers in a row. I feel like I owe it to my kids to spend some time w/them without my nose in a book (well at least during the day).

    Enjoy your summer...
