    I'm in my senior year of a BSN program (yay...less than a year to go!) and I'd love to participate but I cannot use AOL nor do I have ICQ -- any suggestions?

    There is a Java program for AOL Instant messenger that you may be able to use, even behind a firewall. Some of us also have yahoo! messenger? If any of these options work for you, let us know? Also, you can just opt to use the bulletin board? We all read it, and you can post any topic you like, and we will chat with you on this

    you can also email any of us!
    Good luck, and let us know if we can do anything!

    I think when we all are on we should meet up in the chat room on this board so all can talk together....

    That would work ok for me However, the chat applet is often not working. When there are 3-5 of us online, we often start our own chatroom through AIM. If we ever have one when you are online, you will definately get an invite! However if you are not logged in to AOL, we may not know that you are online. Keep up the ideas!

    Thanks for the heads up about AOL IM. I've downloaded and am good to go. Please add me to the list. My IM name is suekomidwife.

    Best time for me at the moment is mornings and early afternoons as I work nights, but all this will change in August when school starts up again. Then it's chaos, utter chaos!!!
