Our mission on this site is to provide helpful information to aspiring nurses, nursing students, and nurses. We provide free articles and videos on topics such as nursing skills, nursing school study tips, nursing career tips, salary information, teaching series (with free quizzes), and much more.
We encourage students, teachers, and nurses to help us spread the word about our site. Many teachers share our content with students, and universities and websites have embedded our YouTube videos on their pages. They also link to resources on our site, such as our free quizzes or salary overview articles.
My name is Sarah, and I am the owner of this nursing blog. I am married to the man of my dreams, and we have one son. My husband is an entrepreneur and writer. He also has an interesting medical condition known as Cholinergic Urticaria.
I graduated nursing school with honors on May 9, 2009 with my BSN in nursing. Nursing school was a challenge, and if you are in it right now, you know exactly what I am talking about. I passed the NCLEX-RN on June 11, 2009. Thankfully, I passed it on my first try, and I was ecstatic!
I’ve worked as a Registered Nurse on a ICU step-down cardiac unit. My newest future goal is to become a ANP aka Nurse Practitioner but that is a future goal I hope to achieve in a few years.
I enjoy writing, website design, studying the human body, spending time with my husband, going to the beach, playing tennis, eating tasty food, watching movies, and listening to music. Pretty much I am up for everything! I am from Tennessee which is considered the South and is located in the US for all you people who don’t live in the USA. Many people think that Tennesseans don’t wear shoes and still use the bathroom in out houses but trust me we don’t. We have indoor plumbing, shoes, and are very up to the times (LOL).
I have a cute poodle name Benji. He currently lives with my mom and I miss him dearly! My husband and I bought our first house in October of 2009. It was truly a dream come true and we are both so happy! He keeps me busy by always wanting to remodel or paint.
I decided to start this site, Registered Nurse RN.com, because I wanted to share my experiences of nursing school and soon to be nursing life with fellow nurses, nursing students, and ordinary people. I want this website to be an information outlet for everyone in the nursing profession. I wish I would have started this at the beginning of my college career which was about 3 years ago but I guess better late than never.
I want this to be a great resource for all nursing students, registered nurses, and the average person interested in the topics I write about. I think that if you are a nursing student or soon to be one you will find it very helpful because I know what I have gone through is probably what you are going through too. Nursing school is hard but it will make us into great professional nurses! Here is a great quote I found:
“Nurses can take the pressure. ” Author Unknown ( I would like to add to the quote: because they have gone through nursing school!)
I look forward to blogging and can’t wait to hear from you!
