    I am also a new member and want to say hello to everyone. I have been an RN for over 20 years and was hoping to find out some ideas and tips about overseas nursing. I desperately want to work in Europe for a time and need some suggestions of how to go about getting registered etc. Any help is very much appreciated.
    Thanks, minghue
    I don't know if this will do it or not, but this is a forum for international nursing:

    If it is not under "general" international nurses then I'm not sure where you would find it, maybe do a search under "nursing in Europe"?

    good luck!

    Thanks Zoe! What program are you in? Good luck to you

    Hi Pinky, what program? I'm in AA!

    Well, I am but I know that's not what you meant, just teasing you. I graduated from a diploma program in Maine in 1981 - I did go back for a bit for my English degree but right now I'm kind of in limbo.

    Take care!

    Hello Everyone!
    I found this forum today and thought it might be a good way for me to get ready for my return to the nursing workforce - break the ice, I guess. I am 47 and practiced nursing - mostly pediatric and med-surg - for about 5 years before starting my family, and then dedicating myself to homeschooling my 3 kids. I have been home for 20 years but have kept my nursing credentials current. This year my 2 oldest married, and my baby graduated from high school, and now I must find myself again. I am considering applying at the local schools to do substitute work -both nursing and teaching - just to get my feet wet again. I have some fears to overcome, but I know I can do it. If you have any words of advice or encouragement, please write. Thanks and God Bless!

    It was scary for me after less than 4 years off from nursing so I can imagine! Some of the bigger hospitals do offer refresher courses, and you could also contact the board of nursing to see what they suggest. You will do FINE if you could handle 3 kids - this will be a piece of cake! Lots of things have changed but if you still remember how to care - you'll be all right!

    Hi! My name is Abby and I am in my third year of my B.S.N. program at Grand Valley State University in Michigan (GO LAKERS!) This is the first time I've posted anything on here..but I truly enjoy reading the news and advice that everyone gives on this website. I'm 20 years old and I can't wait to be a nures! I plan on attending UofM or Madonna University to get my Masters after I finish up here at Grand Valley. God is the center of everything that I do. I truly feel that nursing is a calling and I'm so happy to have accepted His message.

    I SO envy your energy! Good luck with that, and God bless you!

    Hi everyone! I'm entering an AAS RN program next fall here in NJ. I already have a BA in theoretical linguistics, but I have decided that being a professor isn't for me. I am interested in nursing because my Mom is a PharmD and always speaks so highly of the nurses she works with in her LTC facility--plus who can argue with the pay? I have a BA and I make *a lot* less than a nurse with an AAS/RN! I'm really excited about this board, and I'm glad I found you all. Nice to meet you!

    Hi Knittinurse! Good luck with school!

    I am new to the site just joined. Read some of the great messages and feel great admiration for you busy career women and mothers going to school. Have grown children and a granddaughter who is 2 years old and wonderful. I have been with her everyday during the week since she was two months old while both parents work and I have enjoyed it so very much. Now I want to rejoin the working world of nursing but first have to take a refresher course. I am hoping to get some leads about an online course of study. I would appreciate help that anyone can give me. Thanks for listening and would love to hear from you. My name is Linda
    Try this forum (below) and ask your question there. Hope it helps!

    Hi All,
    I am new as well. Just found out I got into nursing school starting in the fall of 2006. I am very excited but nervous especially after reading a few posts around. It will be a big career change but I've wanted to do this all my life. Sounds like I won't have a life for the two years in nursing school (ADN program) and lots of new job stress afterward but that is okay. I will be doing something I have dreamed of. I am sure I will have tons of questions looks like this is a great place for some advise.

    Anyways I have 4 kids (3 are step kids and one of my own) They are in middle school, High school and college, and a great husband who does alot of cooking while I have been taking prerequisites in night classes.

    One bite at a time, dear! LOL! You'll do fine!
