There are many links, notes, and resources to help other brave LPNs with the on line challenges of bridging to become a RN. This is an on-going record of the trials and triumphs of my journey to reach my goal to become a Registered Nurse via Excelsior College's Nursing Program. My journey continues as I further my education and career. I hope my notes and resources help other students on their journey.

My first Florida Occupational Health Conference in Naples was a wonderful experience. I had the privilege of being sent by my employer to the Ritz Carlton in Naples, Florida. The accommodations were wonderful. The food was delicious. The topics were great. Dental Trauma happens more time than you think and there are numerous safeguards to prevent you from overpaying. Laura McAlvain did an excellent presentation. Kellie Collins presented Head to Toe Assessment, I think she missed her calling, an awesome speaker and educator. Enough can not be said for the directors and speakers for presenting 20 continuing education hours in a 2 1/2 day period. If you are involved in Occupational Health in Florida, The Florida State Association of Occupational Health Nurses is a valuable resource.
