Well, most of you don't know me, so I will introduce myself. Obviously my name is Ryan, I'm 23 years old, and I had Lap Band surgery on 3/15/05 (did this on spring break during nursing school). Well I just finished nursing school and am scheduled to take the state boards on September 26th. I am so nervous and I was wondering if anyone could give me any pointers. I would really apprecaite it. I already have a job in L&D (I did my practicum there and absolutely loved it), so any of the L&D nurses I would appreciate some insight on that as well. I am so excited to see that there is a message board on here especially for nurses, that I just found. Well I wish all of you continued success on your weight loss endeavors, whatever method you choose. Thank you in advance fo the support.
