2 former nurses about to graduate...

Update...we just got our trainer and left out this afternoon for our 6 weeks of training. Pretty sure we got a good one and his easy-going nature fits well with us. He also appears to bathe so there's THAT as well. We stayed exactly a week at orientation in Chattanooga and we are super glad to be out of there. The room mostly. Omg seriously the worst place we've ever stayed. But everyone is friendly and helpful and things are really organized so you aren't wandering around lost or confused. I would suggest Covenant for husband/wife teams and not singles who care about getting home. They are really set up more for established teams and if you are solo the teaming process looked a bit awkward to me. We left Chattanooga and went to ATL and are about to drop a trailer and pick up another to be in TX by tomorrow. I'll be driving most of that I guess since hubby has been driving since we left. Nothing like trial by fire :O Our trainer talks like we will stay pretty busy and not have a lot of downtime like some of the other's I've read are having right now. Going to try and get some sleep now..YAY for having to acclimate to a whole new sleep schedule AGAIN :'(

Noob starting at Werner

Hey Daniel how are things going? I've been reading your posts since my husband and I planned on going to Werner (out of Lakeland Fla) they would train us together but we decided to stay with Covenant at least a year before we bounce. It sounds like you were getting discouraged so I hope things got better for you. From what I've gathered your training experience depends totally on how good your trainer is...unfortunately it doesn't sound like you know which kind you have until it's too late :-(
