Student Support


Did anyone out there have a Future Nurses Club?

I’d have joined in a minute.

There are a lot of student nurses out there trying to work, often full time, take classes and maintain/raise a family.

Our fellow nurse student bloggers have ads on their blogs and we can support them by clicking on the links or ordering our amazon.com items through their sites.

One of the advantages of the blogosphere is that we are able to help each other. For instance, one of our favorite NP students at The Nurse Practitioner’s Place offers various options for those who would like to help.

I chose to help through Pay Pal, although I think I have the entire amazon.com inventory in my house.

So when you read the blogs by students, both nursing and medical, remember to give them a “shout out” financially when you can.

It makes things so much easier when you are trying to do it all.

    Hi Kim! I stumbled on your blog via, well, another blog, and really enjoy your posts. I have one more semester to go in my LPN-to-RN program, with the goal of working in ICU and/or ED; your blog is an inspiration to me, that even when my classes have seemed so incredibly intense, that there is a light at the end of the tunnel! I worked in sales and marketing for 20 years, but nursing is so much more challenging for me!

    My school doesn’t have a Future Nurses Club, but we have managed to resurrect the school’s chapter of the SNA. Hopefully we can attract more members, help them along the path as well.

    Thanks again for such a terrific blog!
