    I work in a medical ICU…

    Advice for students? Hmmm….maybe just that I feel like I really learned the majority of things when I actually started working and during orientation instead of during school. Oh – and you WILL pass boards. It’s hard to believe at the time, but you will!

    I started in ICU right out of school, and while it’s been good experience, it’s a very stressful place to start. Not sure I’d really recommend it. I’m actually looking to get into another area of nursing. That’s what’s great about this field – there’s so many different opportunities!!

    @PoliceWifeToBe –  L & D is someplace I’ve wanted to be for the past couple years! Jealous!!

    @PoliceWifeToBe:OO that is my Dream!

    I am a current Nursing student, I take my boards for LPN in 2 months so I can start working and get some experience other than clinicals (o joy lol )  under my belt,  and start the RN program in January.

    @sweet    … I know I’m really happy/lucky to have my position. I started out and did a year on post-partum, there was an opening at another facility for LDRP and they hired me.. I’ve only been a nurse two years this May.. so I’m very happy! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I work psych, and I love it. I’ve also worked peds, ER, and I’ve been a nurse at a high school. I, however, could never work L&D as something about watching a baby come into the world makes me light headed.

    As far as advice for nursing students? It will end and you will graduate, and it will totally be worth all the hard work.

    My current nursing school program is on hold however I care for my grandfather fulltime so I do home care.  My FH and I sold our house when my gram passed and moved in with my pap to care for him.  I did online classes until Janurary because I ran out of online things to do.  I will put my life/schooling on hold for however long I need too.  Take Care

    Medical Surgical RN. I have been working for a 9 months since graduating last year. Nursing was a second career choice for me ๐Ÿ™‚ I enjoy my job, but I hope to be sponsored to take a high acuity/crtical care certificate this fall, and switch jobs.

    I guess I re-read what I wrote – just to clarify, nursing is a second CAREER, not my second choice. I did research first, and it was really borin for me. I love nursing!
