Hello...I'm Jennifer. Just moved to MN from WY to go to school. I have a little girl who turned 5 on the 9th of this month, and a little angel boy who came into our lives on the 8th of August this year!!! Things are soooo busy here already...I can't imagine what it will be like once I start school. I'm exhausted just thinking about it!
Graduated from HS in '99 with no clue what I wanted to do, so I just didn't go. (Kick myself all the time for that decision...!!) I have always known I wanted something in the medical field...decided a few years ago that I would start with an RN degree and go from there. My mom started as a nurse (I'm attending the same school she did way back when!), then got her P.A. I'd like to do the same, but we'll see how things go.
I've worked as a CNA for a little over 3 years. I spent the first 2 working in the alzheimers/dementia unit of one of the nursing homes in wyo, then moved to the hospital and worked in the inpatient rehab unit (with stroke, back/neck/hip surgery, head/spinal cord injury patients, etc.). I enjoyed it, but it's not what I'd like to do once I've earned my degree. (I'm kind of an adrenaline junkie...I need more excitement.) Right now my interest lies in ER and OB. We'll see!
I'd love to get to know some people!! Being that I just moved here (at 34 weeks in my pregnancy...yuck!) and haven't started school or working yet, I haven't had a chance to meet anyone. You can only stay sane so long talking to a 5 year old and a new baby.

Hi everyone. I'm Chante. I just started going back to school in 03. I've been wanting to do nursing for awhile now. I've taken all my prereq and I have a GPA of 3.4. I have applied for 4 schools for the spring. I hope I get in. I tried to get for Fall of 05 but was not accepted. I cried the whole weekend. Wish me luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!
