New girl in town

  1. Hello, my name is Ama, I just joined this lovely site 12/31/06. More importantly I would like to meet nursing students and nurses who I believe i can get interesting information on how to achieve a career as nurse.
    I am currently attending Howard University BSN program in Washington D.C.
    Please feel free to reply! Have a happy new year..

    Hi Ama

    I am newly registered as well, today in fact. I am going to go for my RN thru excelsior. Did you go to a conventional school for your RN? I could use any advise available as it is all new to me.
    Happy New year to you too!

    Hi ama naana,

    All I can tell you is that when you leave nursing sckool, work on a medsurge floor a year, then go to a specialty such as ICU, CCU or L&D, because I have been a nurse for 41/2 years and been a medsurge nurse for the majority of the time and if I could've done it differently, I would've specialize in something.
