Default New student (Be gentle)

Hello everyone!

My name is Cerise. I am a 20 year old from Sault Ste Marie, ON, Canada deciding to go back to my gut instinct of nursing. I started my health care courses in high school but slacked off and never got my chemistry credit so I gave up on myself and took business in college instead. I graduated my 2 year business with honors but am far from happy with it. It is not what I want to do with my life. I took a year off to 'find myself' and decided that there was nothing I wanted to do more than get back on track with my nursing so here I am. This September I begin my Pre-Health Sciences course, followed by the collaborative Bachelor of Science in Nursing course with co-op/placement. I couldn't be happier that I am back on track.

I stumbled onto this site and figured it would be the best place for advice, tips and answers to some questions!!

I have narrowed myself down to a couple of areas of the nursing field I would like to work in. Either Labor and Delivery or Postpartum without a question.

So there is my mini introduction. Any questions?

Hi Cherry. Welcome to Nursing Voices. I'm glad that you stopped by. I'm happy to hear that you want to be a nurse. We need all the nurses we can get.

Nursing school is tough, but it rewarding. Here's a link to a post that I wrote last year that will help you out.


Best, MJ

Thank you so much! Great read!

I know there will be plenty of work and ups and downs but I love a challenge, work great under pressure and cannot wait to start! The harder the struggle the greater the reward in the end!!!

PS - I love your avatar!

Welcome to NV. Don't narrow yourself too much in regards to where you want to specialise!!
I have changed my mind soooo many time!

But hey, you never know!

TRY: "I am a nursing student (From Iowa?). I am new to the forum but have found it quite interesting. I have been able to get a lot of information about nursing which has been very helpful. As a new nursing student and I am enjoying this forum."

Hi Synjones, welcome to NV. Is the 'Iowa Drug Addiction' site yours? You must also know johndisoja21 who has also posted today. It appears that he/she is from Florida, as he/she is advertising the same site as you, just for a different state!
