First year has been great! I work at a small hospital in Trigg County-Cadiz, Ky. We have Med-Surg and ER kind of together (very small) I get to see a lot of things! Also work at JSMC in Hopkinsville on Ortho floor. So far I love both areas! I have been thinking of getting my BSN through McKendree College, they hold class one day a week at Lourdes in Paducah. Is that where you will work? Right now at our small hospital we (RN's) have to make transfers with the ambulance service until February when our ambulance service will be going ALS. Thank God! We go to Paducah a lot!
I worked at Lourdes on med-surg for two years in the mid 90s. I'm hoping to return to nursing at WBH Labor and delivery. I'll take a nursing refresher course offered at PCC in a couple of weeks.
I'd like more info about the McKendree program. I've thought about it before, but doing the RN to BSN program at Murray seemed cheaper. I'll definitely Google McKendree. I'd like 2-3 years in L&D and then move on in education to leave the clinical area eventually.
I'm glad your first year has been a good one for you. What a blessing! Some of us weren't so lucky.
I, too, go to Paducah often (groan). I'm about 30 minutes out, but if I need clothes, make-up, a book, a movie or a good meal, well, I'm there!
Stay in touch.
