I am a mother of two and went back to school in my mid thirtys. My children are still small and need me and so does my husband. I found that cooking meals on weekends and freezing them helped alot. I am ready to graduate in two weeks and I was very lucky I guess that my family conformed to my schedule, however they always knew that they came first. Maybe if her children realized that they were more important to her then nursing school that would be enough to get her through also freezing meals helps this way even a few nights a week they have a hot meal on the table.
Cool, thanks for the message. I wish you a lot of luck!!! Its probably going to be one of the hardest things you do in your life but its so rewarding. I love every minute of it. Let me know if you need any help, ever! Thanks again!! Maybe we'll see each other at work someday
Thanks for that reply, I keep asking instructors and they say go wherever you want because everywhere is a specialty now a days. Also they say to pick something I know I will like but I still feel I have more learning to do and I know I'll learn in an ER but maybe not the way I should like on a floor. I was also thinking maybe a step down unit may be the answer. I'll keep thinking about it before I put those applications in. Thanks again.
Thanks for your reply. I see you have Trauma med surg down as your specialty, are you doing that or strictly med surg. I appreciate your input
I will be graduating in December and I'm trying to decide what to do with my life. I did an externship at Cooper in South Jersey in the ER and love the ER but there are some things that just don't sit right with me. I don't know if thats the right place to start, even though you learn a ton, especially at Cooper. I don't know if maybe I should start somewhere else like CCU or ICU. I know I definetely can't do med/surg, I still need some kind of adrenaline rush. Anybody with any suggestions, I'll take them. The other thing is I'm torn between Cooper and Virtua so any help there I'll take that too. I did all of my rotations at Virtua so I feel comfortable there as well, just two totally different hospitals. Thanks everyone. I look forward to being a part of this.
