Married to my best bud. 5 years ago we changed our names to "Daddy" & "Mommy" and welcomed the coolest little man on earth. His baby brother arrived in early 2006, and somehow he manages to be the coolest little man on earth too. ?

  1. Minnesota Roll Call

    I live in the eastern burbs. I've always lived in MN and for a few years in northwestern WI. The winters get to me after a while, but do like living here. I don't have anything to compare it to. :) I'm an RN, splitting my part time hours between two ...
  2. Nursing Assistant?

    Getting your CNA is the best way to kick off your nursing career, in my opinion. Good for you for doing it!! You will gain so much knowledge and many parts of your nursing clinicals will be a breeze after having CNA experience. I second that!
  3. Wow, I'm so sorry that things just can't be simple for you guys. I am glad that you are happy with the care you are receiving at the Mayo though. Imagine the horrible frustration if you were not. You, your son and the rest of your family hang in the...
  4. 1 year vs 2 year LPN programs

    That's where I got my LPN.
  5. "Private" CPNE workshops?

    I was just curious about these "private" workshops, not the ones put on by EC or the publishing companies. It is my understanding that they are put on by former students? I had just never heard of this before and was wondering who these people are an...
  6. St. Paul Techies

    Ok it's St. Paul College now. I forget that. Anywho, I was in that area the other day and had some time before I had to be where I had to be, so I swung by the school. I hadn't been there since 1997 on the day of my pinning. How weird it was going ba...
  7. Several CPNE questions

    Re: your #4 question---- if there is something that is a tough call and you just don't know the answer to (like the question you posed) you can always ask the primary nurse what they have been doing. I had a situation like this where I was unable to ...
  8. adn and cna

    I have always said that a person has not really had a JOB until they have worked as a CNA. That's a job. It's such a very, very important job with skills that you will use for the rest of your life should you enter the healthcare field. It's not alwa...
  9. Hey Wisconsin Folks

    I'm your neighbor to the west. I went through EC and was very happy with it. There are loads of EC students over on the Distance Learning/Indep. Study board. Take a hop on over there.
  10. L.P.N to R.N trough RUE?

    :yeahthat: I went with them and am sorry that I did. PM me for details.
  11. "Private" CPNE workshops?

    I've seen "private" workshops mentioned in a few posts and was wondering what the heck these are? Are they former students putting them on, through publishing companies, or what??? How long are they? And how much do they cost?
  12. EC CPNE workshop

    I went to a workshop put on by EC prior to my CPNE and I was VERY glad that I did. I thought it was money very well spent. Like medicrnohio, it calmed my nerves. I went when I was 98% ready to do my CPNE and the workshop helped me to get that last 2...
  13. CPNE Failure

    I'm so sorry it was a rough weekend for you. I've been there so I understand completely. You know exactly what you did wrong and you will not do those things again. You have come so far and worked SO hard---- please don't give up. You can do it. Yo...
  14. Excelsior

    Ditto. I know several other people in other states who it has worked out real well for as well. Good luck! :)
  15. Flu Clinic

    Check out the job section in the papers too. Every year I see ads wanting nurses for flu clinics.
