Hello and let me introduce myself

  1. Hi everyone, I am a little excited since I found out that I passed the NCLEX.
    Here is a little about me:
    I am 26 years old (just turned 26) and am a mother of 2 children. Evan is 8 (had him in High school) and Cora is 3. They are the loves of my life. I grew up in Santa Maria, Ca and decided to move away for school. I moved to LA, got married to my high school sweetheart and had my daughter. I always wanted to be a nurse so I went for it. I was one of the only girls in my program to have 2 kids.
    I attended Mount St Mary's College in Brentwood, California (In L.A) and recieved by BSN and PHN. And am very proud of my accomlishments. It was very difficult for me especially since my husband and I separated my last year. But now that I am finished, it was worth every second.
    I plan on taking the summer off and traveling. I already went to the Western Carribean for a week and Sacramento for 2 weeks. In a couple of weeks I go again to Yosemite for 7 days, Shaver lake for 5 days and Tahoe for 3 days. I have to get all this traveling before I start working.
    I plan on working at either Harbor-UCLA or USC in the women health ER or the regular ER. Both are trauma 1 hospital. I am really excited to finally be able to work as an RN. But what I really can't wait for is the pay check.
    I am glad I found this website and hope to meet many nurse on this board.
