    I'm 25 (soon to be 26! :uhoh21: ) I recently moved to Chattanooga TN and hopefully will get accepted into a radiologic technology program this fall. I hope to end up working as a radiation therapist or perhaps in MRI. I have been married for almost 5 years (in may!) and my husband is also going back to school this fall, doing distance learning at MS State.

    Hey, I'm 26 and originally from Idaho, but just moved to West Virginia where my husband is going to medical school and so I decided to go back to school to nursing. I am close to the W. Virginia/Virginia border and will be attending nursing school in Virginia.

    I'm Whitney, 36, mom of 4 (1 girl (13), and 3 boys (11,9, & 7), married almost 15 years, and live in a tiny New Hampshire town. I started taking pre-req's almost 10 years ago, had another baby, then got back on track about a year and a half ago. I applied to the ADN program at the school I was going to last year, but didn't make it in, so joined the General Studies program instead.

    I've been maintaining a 3.85 average, and this December decided to apply early to every school w/in an hour's driving distance. I found out a few weeks ago that I made it into two of them, and am facing a choice of an expensive private Catholic college (which I just found out I won a substantial scholarship to) or a tech college (which is good too, but only downfall is I'd have to be an evening student, w/clinicals on Thursday and Friday nights - BLAH!).

    Whatever I do will be a challenge. I'm a Type 1 diabetic on an insulin pump, trying to achieve tight control, which I'm sure I WON'T be doing during nursing school. But at least the pump is geared for stuff like this - I don't have to eat on any schedule anymore, like I did with MDI. That is why I love, LOVE my pump! (something only a diabetic could say! :chuckle )

    It's great reading everyone's stories!
