Congrats on the grades and it seems like your happy at how your doing so that is what counts.

What kind of nurse are you aspiring to be? A friend of mine has completed his nurse practitioner and is working hand in hand with a doctor. He loves it, but he had run the full spectrum of nursing from EMT to this with every stop inbetween and was never really happy.

Although he spent more time with the new babies than any other step.

Thanks TJ.. as of right now.. just aspiring to graduate, get my RN license and get a job.

I'd like to work in med surge for a year or two just for the variety of experience I'd get.. I liked the ER .. Peds.. Telemetry..

OB was cool but not typically a place for male nurses.. Not one male nurse in OB at the hospital I did my clinicals.. might have to look at long term care in the beginning. Economy ain't so hot for anyone, including nurses. Could prolly always find a job there though.. Huge need and getting bigger..

Nurse practitioner would be awsome.. and more school.. if I ever did that I'd go for a nursing anesthetist..

But.. like I said.. as for now.. plan is .. graduate.. get my license.. get a job..

Ya, getting a job would be top on the list I imagine, the process took my buddy about 12 years I think between stages and going back to school. He never found anything that really kept his interest with a passion so he kept looking for more.

The medical profession has so many splinters of directions you can go into that you can do a lot of different things even at the RN level. Good luck.

All those splinters is what I love I best.. I love the variety of options.. I could live anywhere I want too and always have a good chance of finding a great job..

After graduation I can get a public nurse license from the state.. Could be a school nurse.. work in a local/state public health dept.. etc.. My BSN will qualify me.. I'm going to whether I ever use it or not.. I kinda liked public health clinical.. I actually like research and crunching numbers too.. never know.

Re: Verbal masturbation..

So, throughout school we periodically take these Hesi tests in all the areas we cover.. med/surge, peds, nutrition, mental health, etc.. they're basically prep tests for the NCLEX I'll need to take to get my license after graduation, not counted for my grades or anything. Just to monitor my progress.

I've done good on all of them, but nothing spectacular. But today we took one for pathophysiology and I scored in the 98.5 percentile among nursing students nationwide. Only 1% scored better.. :)

Had patho 2 years ago too.. yay me..


Can't wait to be done.. very soon.
