New Here!!!

  1. Oh lord! I have been waiting for 2 days to be able to post here! lol This place is a wealth of information and I cannot wait to become a "regular" here!

    So...after my long wait, here is my grand entrance!
    My name is Marina. I am 24 and I currently live in Ontario, Canada. I am planning to enter the BScN program in 2006 (when the kids enter school!!).
    This has been my dream for as long as I can remember, and I am very anxious to get started! (even though I know that the schooling is going to be quite intense!)

    Hubby and I just got married February 1st 2003, and we agreed that it was time for me to start preparing for Nursing!
    I start my volunteer work at the local hospital next month (once the SARS situation is somewhat under control) and will be taking a 1 year Nursing prep course in 2005 (mature students still need the pre-reqs here )

    Anyway, Hubby is Brian and the kids are Tyler (Sept 2000) and Katelyn (Nov 2001). My family is my life
    I love to cook, i'm anal about cleaning the house, i'm a reality t.v junky and I would do anything for a piece of chocolate cake at any given moment!

    We have agreed that my graduation present will be a trip to San Francisco!!! We were there for our honeymoon, and I do believe my heart is still there Anyone here from SF???

    I'm not sure what area of Nursing I'd like to specialize in, but I have been reading the Emergency and Oncology sections quite a bit over the last 2 days!

    So...thats my introduction! Sorry for being all over the place! I'm just so excited that I can finally post here!

    I look forward to getting to know you all!
    Hugs
    Marina
