    I will be moving to the snowy and cold state of Missouri this April from NJ. I am really looking forward to it. I plan on being in the Chesterfield area to begin with, and who knows where I'll end up once I'm established.

    I just passed the NCLEX (I just got the "Pass" status today, as a matter of fact!) and as soon as I have the NJ license in hand, I'm applying for the endorsement license. Really excited about the whole move!

    Actually Missouri isn't always snowy and cold! Coming from S. CA, I find that I really like the change in seasons, occasional snow, ice, etc. Good luck with your move and congrats on your "pass"!

    :wink2: There is definitely more snow during the winter in MO than here in NJ -snowfall on the Jersey Shore usually amounts to a dusting, and some ice, nothing noteworthy!

    And, Thank You! I'm so excited to start my nursing career! It was a long, difficult journey, and I can't wait to take the next step.

    This site is a godsend. I recently stumbled upon it in search of some information about financing my absn. I live in south St. Louis and will be attending SLU's accelerated BSN program at the end of this month. Nice to meet all of you, I'm sure you will be seeing a lot more of me once I begin the program!

    I'm a "second career" first semester student in the Springfield area. I'm originally from Chicago, but have lived here in SWMo for close to 30 years - so this is definitely "home" to me now. Nice to meet you all!

    Well, I've been here in Missouri for six months now, and I must say I absolutely love it. It is definitely culture shock for me, but I am experiencing St Louis to the utmost!

    I had applied to as many hospitals in the area as I could find job listings for, and unfortunately, it seemed as though none would hire me without experience. I am currently working in an LTC facility, getting the experience I need to eventually get hired in a hospital. While its not the job I wanted, it IS a job, and you can't beat getting a paycheck!
