A 29 yr. old Newbie from N.J.<m>

  1. Hello everyone,
    I posted to a couple of threads not realizing that I hadn't made a proper introduction.... ......My name is Fatima, I'm married and a mother to 3 children, 2 dd's (who are 7 1/2 adn 5 1/2) and 1 son who is 13 months. I am currently a Pre-nursing major. I was previously an Early Childhood Education major. I didn't feel fulfilled in that program. I have always been interested in nursing but was just ot afraid to pursue it. I am taking Anatomy & Physiology 1 and Chemistry 101 this semester....all at night and every day of the week except Fridays.... ....lol.....I'm glad I found this board and I hope to make wonderful friendships and find and give encouragement and support.

    I just wanted to say hi and welcome to the allnurses boards. I love it here! I took all evening courses when my boys were smaller and my hubby was home to take care of them. I love night classes. They can be a lot of fun since there aren't so many students in them. I wish you the best and welcome you to nursing. See ya "on the boards"!

    Happy Nursing~Angie
