Hi, I have been an RN for about 9 months, but have yet to practice. I went into labor with my second daughter as I finished my ASN nursing final (I was about to have my 1st when I got my acceptance letter). I took these 9 months to get my BSN and to recover after losing my mother to H1N1 in January. I am married to a wonderful man who understands absolutely nothing about healthcare, but listens to me exclaim excitedly over medscape articles and supports my every whim. I can't wait to trade my yoga pants for scrubs and get to work.

    There is such a thing as a non accredited high school. The school has to be licensed by the state.

    Does anyone actually read all the reading assignments?

    I didn't even buy textbooks my last couple semesters of ASN. I studied my nclex review sections for whatever topic and used online resources for the other info. My lowest grade was a B and I rocked the nclex the first time.
  6. Rural areas is where the shortage is. I have been up to my elbows in job offers and sign on bonuses out here in the boonies.

    Help! I think I *need* to be a nurse! :)

    I first felt called to nursing when I was 16. I fought it with everything I had. I was on track for med school and to be honest I thought nursing was kind of "meh" at the time. When I graduated high school I had already finished almost semesters of c...
