    Hi, I'm Kat 28 and am in my 1st year coming into 2nd year of Adult Nursing Diploma (hope to finish 3rd year with the degree!). I'm Currently in my second placement on a private surgical ward and from this expirience i know i dont want to specilise in this the pace is very slow! 1st placement was on a NHS medical ward and although it near killed me with the pace i would rather be busy then sit around all day not interacting with patients! (sorry digressed). Think Community or sex sense would be more my bag! Am loving making the move to become a nurse roll on my passport to the world!

    Hi, I'm Ashlea. Pre-nursing student with 3 pre-reqs left to go. 4.0 so far! Hoping to be accepted into the ADN program at Ivy Tech Bloomington (IN) for Spring '08.
    I work nightshift as a Nurse Tech on the Med/Surg floor at the local hospital. I would like to work in the ED when I finish school. I spent a lot of time there as a clerk and really liked the environment.
    Anyone familiar with Ivy Tech Bloomington?

    i am a 49 year old divorced mom of six children, 2 grandchildren. three are grown and 3 are teenage girls still at home ages 16, 15, and 13.
    i start my adn program aug. at henry ford community college, dearborn, michigan. i carry a 3.914 cummulative gpa and have finished all prereques; i was only on the wait list for one year. i went through the nursing assistant program a year ago, but didn't bother to get certified since i was going for the rn degree. at present i do not work - just school; but hopefully will get a part time job after my first rotation. you can learn more about me by checking out my myspace page at the link below. i have a link on my blog for several online help with homework sites, family pics and so on. i am proud, anxious and scared to death at the next two years to come. good luck to all who made it in or graduated. everybody keep up the good work.

    My name is Dawn. I am a 41 year old, mother of 3 teenagers. My oldest is headed off to college in August. Imagine that, my child attending school and I can't even finish. I am an online student of TAMU-CC. I keep slowly plugging along and know that one day, I will finish. I think that when I actually do finish school, I will not have a clue what to do with myself. I have been a student for so long. :smackingf
    I look forward to meeting others here.
