    It has been a struggle with two kids and three jobs but today I graduate from RN school. I have a job possibly lined up in cardiac ICU!! I am most excited that I will soon have an old car budget so I can add to my collection and buy cool stuff like neon beer signs, accessories, a juke box, gas pump, and the 57 turnpike cruiser in my avatar!!!
  2. Good for you my Wife has been an RN for 17 years. Glad you hung in there see ya on the road!

    Good for you. I'm an RN in an iCU for 22 years now. It's a good way to fund an old car habit!

    IMHO the medical field is where it's at. Im an old truck driver. I told my 3 kids to get into the medical field a few years ago. Two of them are Pharmacy techs and the third one is a Nurses assistant. And all three are still going to school to further their careers. They are still in their early twenties.

    RNs around here are making good money and are always needed. Good move!

    Me too about the code brown. I start my BSN in October. I also work at a magnet hospital.. This is the way to do it. Get your RN and let the hospital pay for your BSN. I work in the ER now so I am used to the blood and guts. I am also paramedic so I know enough to be dangerous.. Thanks guys for the support.

    I passed my boards today and I am officially an RN!
  22. Congratulations, now go get that good paying job and start your RN career! My wife is an RN, she went to Raymond Walters college in Cincinnati. First RN job was a Med-Surg nurse in Cinti area at a hospital near there. We have moved several times since then to different cities and states, but that is where it all started back in 1992 (I think?, may be off a year +/-).

    Congratulations! Nurses are the people that make a hospital stay as good as it can be. We need good nurses. They are the patients best friends.
  27. Hey, great Hospital I had an unexpected visit there due to what I thought was a heart attack while on a business trip last year. Congratulations on your accomplishment, sounds like you have made some sacrifices, worked hard, and can now reap the benefits. You have set a great example for your children and those around you!
