1. Hi fellas,

    My name is brian, i'm finishing up my prereqs this year and will be applying to nursing school for the fall. I really want to get connected with other guys in the field that are in programs or applying for programs.

    About me: I am passionate about nursing and the nursing field. My desire is to work in Critical Care or NICU(which are two totally different extremes). I love working out and staying in shape and singing opera(which is weird i guess).

    Would love to connect with you me baduckworth

    Hello Brian,
    Good Luck to you. I just got into the LPN program here in New York State. I was on the waiting list last year but got in this year. Classes are going well and my grades, so far, are great.
    We start clinical next weekend Oct. 22. Our first one is at a nursing home. I hope it goes well, I am a bit nervous because I have not done this before and I don't work in the medical field.
    Hope to get to chat with you and others here.

    Hey Brian,

    I will be starting a BSN program at CSU, Channel Islands at Cottage Hospital in Santa Barbara this coming Spring, 2012, so I know what you are feeling at your time of applications... I went through two application sessions, so if you need any tips about what to do ro what not to do, I'd be glad to help in any way. A lot of people helped me on here when I was in your position, so I'd love to pay it forward any way I can.

    Cheers guys.

    I'm starting an accelerated program in January.

    The general consensus to being a successful nurse appears to be:

    -Do your work
    -Be professional
    -Show females that you're awesome

    Anything else?
