Any other Mother/Daughter Students?

  1. My 19-yo daughter and I are taking our second class together - last semester chemistry and now A&P. We are always lab partners. I will be starting the nursing clinicals in the fall, while she is hoping to get into the Ultrasound Program. Our Profs always seem to get a "kick" out of our labs - we are always partners. They hear, "honey, you get the ...., I'll start the ...." and then, "Moooommmm....." :chuckle

    She got me a school sweatshirt for my 47th birthday - next week! She gave it to me early!

    Any other mother/daughters out there?

    I don't have a daughter but I think you are very lucky. Take care!

    What a cool experience. The closest I can come is that my daughter is a CNA student taking a correspondence course 7 states away. She's already a medical assistant who has phlebotomy and wound care experience under her belt so we talk about those issues that I'm currently being checked off on.

    My daughter is a CNA now. She told me not to be mean to the CNAs when I become an RN - remember that they are "somebody's daughter."

    There was a mother-daughter pair doing school together in my A&P courses. Both worked at the same inpatient psych facility together as well - Mom was a psychologist, and dau was a tech/aide. They were going for their RN/ADNs.

    That is just soo cool! I wish my daughter would consider nursing...... she has considered becoming a phlebotomist tho, so that may be as close as I come.

    My daughter and I are also in nursing school together. I am one semester ahead of her so we don't have any classes together. I do try to chase away all the wicked evil monsters on her path though!

    We should graduate next summer and fall respectively. I don't know that we will work together as she is interested in Peds/OB and I prefer Geriatrics.

    Good luck to the two of you.

    That is so cool!

    My 15 year old daughter has decided she wants to be a nurse, as well as my 15 year old step-daughter. Unfortunately, I won't have the opportunity to take classes with them (and they are probably glad about that at their age!), but that would be so dear an experience!

    Good luck to you both!

    Well my Mother/Daughter thing is not exactly like yours but....
    MY mom is a RN-BSN, I am doing my pre-reqs for my Nursing program and I am a EMT-B, my sister is pre-med and a CNA, and my other sister is planning to go to Nursing School once she graduates from High School and she is already an CNA..

    Hi Mauser,

    I think that's great!!! 20 years ago when my sister in-law was 19 - she decided to go to Nursing School and her Mom (having been a stay at home Mom for years) decided to join her. They helped each other through school and being the only 2 females in a house full of "guys" - helped each other with the cooking, laundry ,etc. and both graduated near the top of their class.

    Twenty years later they are both still Nurses and love their jobs. I think it's wonderful how much they have supported each other through the years in their careers. Best of luck to you and your Daughter!!! SusanNC

    Not in our house.

    My daughter and I delegate. Too much going on with school, work and clinical to be doing the domestics too.


    Delegate my best word!
