    Thanks! I am so happy to be done, you're right - now the only thing that stands in the way is NCLEX. I hope to get my ATT in the next couple of weeks!

    Ya know, I've lived in VA all my life and know next to nothing about the Hampton area. My sister lives in Newport News and when I go to visit we just stick with the fun stuff like shopping and eating. LOL I'll ask her about the local hospitals and get back to you. I do know that Mary Imaculate hospital is in that area. You might want to start there.

    I'll keep you posted on what I learn from my sister.

    Okay, I asked my sister. There is a Sentara hospital in Hampton and another in Newport News. And there is Mary Immaculate in Newport News also. Newport News is not far from Hampton.

    Hi VA nurses,

    I just graduated in May '09 and just passed boards - I'll be starting on an oncology unit in a couple weeks. Speaking of - anybody have any good input regarding oncology and what all it entails? Unfortunately never got into the oncology clinical during school.

    Thanks!

    Howdy, Guess today is my official first day as a RN, as I wrote NCLEX yesterday and got the results this morning. Nice to have that behind me. Start at end of Aug at reston Hospital on the PCU (cardiac) Looking forward to it, as I had a great time there on my preceptorship.

    i worked as a tech on the hematology/oncology floor for 2 years before nursing school and i LOVED it. the patients are absolutely wonderful and become like family (as does their family). it is also very interesting and you are always learning, which i love. good luck!

    Did you get to see what kind of care the patients got? Is it more typical of a med-surg floor, or are there big differences? What was your typical workday like?
