1. hello everyone. my name is michelle and i am new to this site. i am in my 3rd semester of nursing school. i am absolutely loving every minute of it. we had our first day of ob today and i saw 2 vag deliveries and a c-section. i have never seen any of it before so it was really great. really gets my maternal itch going though!
    i am a student at college of the desert in palm desert, ca. i was accepted into the regular "daytime" program and was anticipating starting it when i was contacted and offered a seat in the accelerated "evening/weekend" program. obviously i took the accelerated one. the only difference is that we go in the evenings (lecutres) and on the weekends (clinical) and we go straight through summer. we will finish 8 months ahead of the "daytime" class that we started with. it's great!
    our pinning ceremony will be may 1, 2006. we are all really excited...and terrified! :uhoh21: i have signed a contract at a local hospital here. i want to start in the er...i love the traumas! the bloodier, the better.
    anyway...any helpful hints you have would be greatly appreciated!:roll
