    I graduated from a diploma RN program, worked in ICU, obtained a BS degree while working and graduated from a Nurse Anesthetist program. I worked a number of years then returned to ICU (high incident of miscarraiges in the OR). I worked with iur first 2 children and took time off to raise our 3rd child and spend time with all of them. I am currently in a RN Refresher Program. I am disappointed that the instructor can not find a clinical spot for 25% of our class!:angryfire

    Hi, I'm Bre. I've been an RN since 1997 and mostly worked in the homecare field and recently went back into med/surg. After working med/surg for several months and not liking hopital politics at all, I have decided to go into travel nursing. I homeschool my 3 boys, so no problem taking them on the road. I have a good friend that is going to do travel nursing with me. It seems much less scary traveling with a friend. Can't wait to get on the road!

    Hi everybody. Yes, I am new here.I have read the many postings over the past several months but am just now registered. I am an Excelsior Nursing Student from Utah .......waiting for my date for the Clinical Performance in Nursing Examination (CPNE). There are several of us in our local study group that are ready for this CPNE of whom 2 just received a date for February. At any rate, looking forward to reading and receiving other posts from other Excelsior student nurses, and hopefully "talking" to others in the program who are in Utah. We also have a student nursing association for Excelsior student nurses as well here, so hopefully will be hearing from those who want more information to be part of the study group and association. Looking forward to hearing from others...........

    Hello everyone
    I am currently completeing my 135 hours with my preceptor and of course studying for boards to become an LPN. My official graduation date is set for the 16 of December. I have a 14 month old son and a 2 and a half year old daughter. It gets kind of crazy trying to study with two little ones running around, but I have made it this far.

    I don't know how you do it! Good luck to you!

    Hello! I'm a new user posting for the 1st time. A fellow student (not sure of user ID) informed me about this site. From the posts I've read, she was right -- this site is awesome.

    I'm 34 years old (male) and next month will make 17 years of marriage. No children, but we have two dogs. I was previously in electronics and computers, but finally decided that healthcare was more suited for me. With only just over a year left on my GI BILL, I deciced to become an RN. My mother and grandmother were both LVN's and my late M-I-L was an RN, so I'll continue the tradition, but as the 1st male in the family to do so.

    I'm currently in my 3rd semester of the ADN program in Casper, Wyoming. I started pre-nursing in the summer of 2003 and was accepted into the ADN program in the spring of 2004. I'm currently in the telemetry rotation and I'm LOVING IT. My only other healthcare experience was working at Baxter's Biolife Plasma Donation Center during my 1st two semesters as a medical historian (fingersticks for hematocrits and stuff like that). I'm currently working part-time at Sam's Club in the produce department. Very low stress and the same pay as Biolife. I found this works much, much better for studying. After work, which is pretty brainless, my mind is ready to absorb information.

    I look forward to being an active member of this site and hope to learn a lot and hopefully to contribute my limited experience to others.

    Welcome to the site - and to the legacy!

    hey, everyone! how you all doing?! this website is so cool. i hope it can help me with nursing. anyway, i'm 19 male and i just started nursing school. no kids and don't want any for the next 10 years. right now i'm planning to get my bacherlor's and move on to get my master's and become an anesthetist, God willing. So i hope you guys can give me some advice because i really need some. that's actually the reason how i found this website because i was desparate in finding out why i'm struggling in the fundamentals of nursing. Who has a hard time in the fundamentals of anything?!? so i will be posting up a lot of comments. feel free to insult me, criticize me, or brag about your degree...anything just as long as you give me some advice. :chuckle
    I think this thread on careers might help you! Meanwhile, smell the roses, mate!

    addendum: found another thread that you might like, for nurse anesthetists!

    Good luck!

    Hey to All!
    Per the site request I am posting a "how y'all". This reminds me of the online school I attended for my grad degree. Feels like a deliverable:chuckle.

    "Deliverable" eh? I assume that is like an assignment or something?
