    Hello. I am new here and just wanted to say hi. I am in my junior year and am 25 years old. I am a nursing/religious studies-philosophy major and have interests in hospice/forensic/psych/burn nursing. If anyone has the same interests ket me know! I feel alienated being the only one in my class to not want to work in L&D or Peds!!!

    Hi Everyone,

    I am new to this forum. I am a nursing student at CCRI in Rhode Island and started my first clinical this month. I am looking for useful tools such as videos, nclex books, websites ect... to better prepare me for geriatric clinicals. Please let me know if anyone has specifics on what material is best.

    Hi, I'm Sara. I am 22 and graduating in December. I will be getting my associates as an RN. I don't really know what I want to do yet. I loved my oncology rotation as well as my labor and delivery. I am probably going to do a float pool for a year and see where that takes me. I'm really nervous for the boards!

    I just signed up to begin working on my ASN thru Excelsior College. I am very nervous about getting my educaton this way. It has been hard to find people who have completed the program and they generally don't want to offed advice or answer questions about their experiences. So if any one can help PLEASE let me know.

    Hi, I'm Amy from NC. I am starting my nursing degree in January so I should be finished in August of 2008. I've wanted to go into nursing since I was really young, so I'm very excited to get started. I've read over some of the other threads, and this website looks like it will be very helpful as I start school again! :wink2:

    I am 26 years old. I am married and have a 13 month old son . I went to college from 98-02 but did not quite finish a degree in communications. Finally decided what I wanted to be when I grow up. Now I am back in school to get my BSN . I am finishing pre-req's this year and should be able to start clinicals Fall 07. I will graduate in November 09. Seems like 100 years away. Lots of work. Wish me luck!

    Hi! My name is April and I am in my second year of a BSc.N. program in Edmonton, Alberta. If all goes well I'll graduate in either May 2000 or Dec. 2008, depending on how motivated I'm feeling! I am getting married in February, so that adds a ton to my already tight schedule. I admire all of you moms out there who are furthering your educations! You are amazing! Some days I think I'm going to go nuts and I only have myself to take care of!
