I graduated with my ADN on December 16th, 2008! Took NCLEX Feb. 3rd, 2009 and passed with 75, whoo hoo! Received my BSN in 2012. Worked on a busy Med/Surg unit @ the local hospital for 1 year as a staff nurse, then transferred to the Surgical PCU where I worked as a staff nurse, relief charge nurse, and new employee preceptor for 6.5 years. I then joined 3 other floor nurses in becoming an intern in our hospital's pilot PeriOp 101 program called the ORNIP (OR Nurse Internship Program). I'm excited to join this exciting and challenging specialty.
I am LOVING it. OR ROCKS!!!
