    I am just getting started and posted on the board to ask for help. After reading your story I know that I can do this. I am scared all the time. There is not a day that goes by that I don't think to myself "what am I doing." I was never the smart girl in school. I am scared that once I start attending class all will see that and tell me to go.

    I want to be a nurse more than anything in the world. I love to see nurses working. I dream often that it is me. :heartbeatmy heart starts to beat fast, even now; when I think about how happy this would make me. I have not had a lot of joy in my life. after my parents died I felt my world ended. I was so mad with God.

    Now I have something to look forward to. I read the story of the girl who failed clinical. I had to look up what she did wrong. "I guess I should have known" But I didn't. This is why I fear I will fail. Then I was lead to your story, and I felt I can do this. I am going to do this. I know I will make it and be one of you all a RN I love the way that sounds Me a RN. Finally I will be somebody.

    Never let age be a hindrance. I'm 42 years old and graduated nursing school 3 weeks ago. Just waiting to take NCLEX. Your age has nothing to do with it. It's all about determination and going after your dreams!!
