Found My Niche

Update on the latest twists and turns in my nursing career.  My new company is great.  I love it there. I am pursuing my Wound Care Nurse certification from the WOCNA.  Things are looking up.

Just found your website. I am in my final semester of a 2 yr RN program. I also come from an IT background. Was wondering if there was anyway I communicate with you. I'm also having a lot of the same feelings even though I have not yet started my first RN job. Just my experiences during clinicals have caused me to question how I will be able to manage the transition. I have not observed much support from RNs towards students which leads me to question how they treat new grads.

Like the blog, just could not see myself being a nurse. I dont even like doctors. It would be tought for me to go to work every day.

Hi there, I found your site quite interesting since I am making a career transition into either nursing or radiography. I have been self employed for 17 years in 3D animation and computer programming and I too have had a desire to become actively involved in making the world a better place, and due to a variety of health crises in my family I have had the chance to admire nursing and hospital staff and the work they do. I'm starting my first term of pre-requisites in 3 weeks and am blogging about my transition as well.
I'm going to add your blog to my links and you can find mine at:

Hello, I just found your website. Thank you for putting this together for those of us looking to transition into the nursing field.

I am enrolled to begin the prereqs in the Fall semester for the nursing program. I too will be leaving the IT field, partly for some of the same reasons as you.

Is there any chance we can hear an update from you? I'd love to get your perspective now that some time has passed since your last post. Have you not posted because you are not enjoying Wound Care like you initially thought?

-Thank you again for posting your life experiences and for leaving them up.

Found your niche as did we all. The day I decided to become a nurse practitioner was the best and most important day of my life. More importantly, It was the happiest day.

Hey, very nice site. I came across this on Google, and I am stoked that I did. I will definitely be coming back here more often. Wish I could add to the conversation and bring a bit more to the table, but am just taking in as much info as I can at the moment. Thanks for sharing.
