Many of my Fab40 friends know that, 2 years ago, I decided to go back to college. I spent the first year doing all the prerequisites for nursing school and have spent the past year actually in nursing school. I finished the LPN/LVN portion of my coursework and clinical rotations last May. I took the state board exam in September, passed it, and the board of nursing has just licensed me!!! I’m pretty excited. So, now I’m in the RN portion of my training and, God willing, will graduate in May.

I wanted to touch base since I’m really hit or miss over here since school started. I also want to thank everyone for the encouragement I’ve received. You haven’t forgotten me even though I’m rarely online here. You guys are the best!

    • thank you! I was looking back on it yesterday and I can’t believe all that I’ve learned. And, now, they’ve really ramped up the clinical experience. I’ve been in the hospital all the time but now I’m taking a bigger patient load and I’m doing 12 hour rotations. They‘re getting us ready to go from being more task oriented as LPNs and becoming higher level critical thinkers as RNs. I’ve been thinking a lot about what to do after nursing school and I think I may be headed in the direction of Diabetes education and management. I’ll look into possibly working with an endocrinologist. I like the endocrine system in general from glucose regulation to menopause - it covers it all and I find it very interesting.

    • Woohoo!  Nurse Cynthia has a great sound to it!  Some day you’ll be like my mom who almost forgot how to sign her name without “RN” behind it.  She wrote me a note for school one time.  I didn’t realize till i got to school that she’d unwittingly signed it “V. Scott, RN”  The school secretary was NOT amused.

      Endocrinology actually sounds pretty fascinating. I would also think that it is a growing field.
