1. Hello all,

    It's about time I introduced myself as one of the newest members of this board. I am 24, located in West Virginia, and graduated with honors with a degree in business. 18 months in the business world and I knew it wasn't for me. I have been reading your posts for a while and have gotten many of my questions answered. I absolutely love this board and look forward to sharing my experiences with you all and hearing about others' experiences as well.

    I am still taking pre-reqs right now and have already applied to an 18-month accelerated program to get my BSN. I have been contacted by the school and have set up an interview for the final step. So I may be jumping the gun a little bit here but I'm anxious to get started. I got into nursing in the same way many of you did - Family issues and personal experiences with nurses. Now I work with nurses and I'm confident I could do what they do and do it well. I'm looking forward to the challenge nursing school brings as well as continuing with my education long thereafter.

    Sorry this was so long but I just wanted to introduce myself. I've enjoyed your all's posts and I look forward to them in the future. Hope you all have a happy new year.
