I graduated my associate program in May and will sit for boards on the 11th. I went back to work at the hopsital i worked as a LPN at and will stay on my med/surg floor for now.
I went to LPN school after a factory closure, worked as a LPN for 8 years and have spent the last 4 years working part-time towards my RN. I will most likely continue with the ADN to BSN program by next fall i hope. It has been a tough go though, 3 kids that have grown up watching mom do homework, juggle a part-time job and school along with the house and everything else that goes with it. Now my oldest will start college this fall and two tween girls that will be a challenge im sure(girls usually are).
I hope we can all use this board as a sounding board to help us make whatever transitions/adjustments to our new positions we need.

at 44. I have a wife and 2 girls, full time day job and an
extremely busy guitarist on weekends.........but I did it!
Just recieved my RN license. "What a long strange trip it's been"
