Hello to all,
My name is Ted, I'm fourty two y/o, and after looking over this site, I like it better than the nursing groups on myspace. I was a medic in the Air Force, had I stayed in I could have retired three years ago, but since I didn't like the control of military life I spent the last eighteen years bouncing around. I moved to Colorado seven years ago and got a construction job mainly to learn how to build my own house, which I did. No other employment opertunities in this small town paid as well so I kept pounding nails. After a wall fell on my head:trout: I woke up with the notion that I really don't want to do this any more. I had allways liked the medical field so I thought nursing was the way to go. I'm in my second semester at Pueblo Community College ADN program and I must say it feels right. I start my first real clinicals next weekend (first semester clinicals were at a nursing home where we were just helping the CNAs I think just to get some pt contact time). My AF experience has helped tremendously, top of my class, especially with the skills check-offs.
