I found this board a few weeks ago and haven't been able to go to any other websites since then. I'm starting the Nursing Program in the Fall and hope to become a Nurse-Midwife and eventually get my Masters so that I can teach.
So ... after reading all of the posts, I was dying to get into Nursing somehow (only have my CNA), when a friend called and told me there was an opening for a Nurse Tech on the Post Partum floor of the hospital where I will be having my clinicals. Could the timing have been any better? No way! I called, they called me back, I went in for a first interview ... and was hired on the spot! It just doesn't get any better than that.
I start in ten days and couldn't be more happy ... and the sad part is that it pays LESS THAN HALF what my current job pays. And I don't care! It's right where I want to be ...
Thanks to all of you who post here and bare your souls ... as scary as it seems, I'm looking forward to Nursing school and all that comes with it! I'm on my way! :hatparty:
