    Hey Tracy,

    Yeah girl I applied to Coastal too (my friend graduated from there in Dec 2007)and I was accepted but I turned it down to go to Armstrong offer b/c it was a BSN and then lo and behold Coastal now has a BSN program as of Fall 2009. Congrats on your acceptance and good luck!!

    I'm Shanice. Call me Shanice or lotus- whichever you prefer. I'm a wannabe RN. I'm a certified paralegal currently working as a legal assistant. I've worked in the legal field for over 12 years. I'm dissatisfied and unfulfilled. I love to help people and volunteered regularly before beginning classes at GPC this Fall. I'm a divorced mom to 2 boys who are extremely active. I've decided to pursue Nursing because of my desire to help people, because I've always loved hospital environments and because of the possibility of a more flexible schedule. I also want to feel like I've made a difference somewhere, somehow, at the end of a workday.

    I've been out of school for, um, a while (lol) and am taking prerequiste courses. I have a really strong desire to be a Nurse and I really hope I can be accepted into GPC's Nursing Program as soon as my prerequisites are met. I understand it will be very competitive, so any help and information I can get is greatly appreciated.

    Have a wonderful weekend!

    Hello. I'm currently a new LPN that has just moved to the Atlanta area. Looking for more "Nurse" friends to meet and talk to.
    I am trying to talk myself into the willingness to learn veinipunture /pheotomy, and maybe I might find myself willing to go f4ward to be an LPN from a CNA. BUT, if I just give myself a chance and just get the education, I just might just apply for Phebotmist bcuz I know Hospitals are looking for them around here & abroad.

    Hello Georgia! I am joining your group in anticipation of my moving there after I graduate from the technical college I am going to in Louisiana for my Practical Nursing degree. Hooray! I am very excited to finally be attaining part of my sought after dream of becoming a nurse AND to be getting out of Louisiana!
    I will be moving around the Macon area. If you all do not mind, I have a few questions regarding your awesome state. If you have a minute to send an answer - thank you, thank you!
    Around how much an hour are LPN's are starting off? I'm looking at hospitals now in hopes to start there for the first year or two I'm out of school. I will be looking at bridge-continuing education programs over that time so I can continue my dream and get my BSN!
    Any comments/advise you have is greatly appreciated!
    Thank you for letting me be a part of your thread & soon to be a member of your state!!!

    Hello Jay - Roxie here. Mid-life career changer. Non-trad student. Graduated in '93 in midst of the last healthcare reform. Had a difficult time finding my first nursing job so went back to school and studied medical transcription at Gwinnett Tech. Worked prn at nursing homes, typed full time. Kept on trying until the shortage recurred. Worked steady for many years but currently unemployed. Would like to transition into the care of children but it seems like CHOA is such a great place towork that they never have any openings in my certified field, Rehab. Thanks for having this board.
