  1. Hello,

    I am new to this forum and am looking forward to sharing and learning with other nurses. I am currently in school through University of Phoenix Online. I have 5 classes left before I receive my BSN. I took a rest to watch my great nephew, but am now ready to study again.

    Thank you for welcoming me. It is good to that others are new and also others working to continue their education. I have been a nurse since 1995. I waited until my children were out of school to go back to school. I have wanted to be a nurse since I was 3 years old.

    Tweety, are you in school online or a traditional school? I enjoy the online experience because I can do the work when I am free and most of the time the only deadlines for the papers are the things to make time for. The down side is if your partners do not submit their work in a timely manner.

    Currently I am working through an agency and can set my own hours and places I want to work. I love this venue for now. I have seven years as a neurology and med/surg nurse with the other years in long term care and home care. I currently love home care; as I can spend more one on one time with my patients. I am not sure what I want to be when I grow up, but will continue to my Masters.

    Have a great day everyone and there is always something to learn.

    I'm doing online through Florida Hospital College of Health Sciences. I love the online experience and if I go for a Masters I'll skip the local schools and go online again. We have no group projects, thank goodness. I think group projects are overrated and I highly object to them. Good luck!
