    HI Just so you don't feel alone, Which here i doubt you ever will LOL
    I just finished my with my RN Exam. I decided to go back to school after my 4 child. My youngest was 1 and oldest was 12.
    It proved to be interesting and a little hair raising ok maybe alot hair raising but i can say it was the best decision i ever made.

    I am now embarking on a new adventure of moving to North Carolina with my family from canada.
    I can't wait

    Take Care and all you have to do is say i know i can even when you think you can't through those exams

    Take care

    Hi nrs2bme and welcome to the board! I'm not exactly in the same "boat" as you, but I'm 29, married, and have a 4 yr. old boy.

    I've been working as a Paramedic for the past 5 years and have decided to expand my horizons and become a RN. I start back to college this Fall to complete the pre-requisites and the rest of my classes for my AA Degree. I too am working full-time and will have to continue doing so while in school. I have a very supportive husband, but we just can't afford for me to quit work at this time and pay for college.

    Well, I hope to chat with you again!

    Hello,
    I'm already addicted and just found this place today. No one can understand the stressors (my teacher would be so proud I used that word) that we go through except fellow students! I'm married also w/ 2 boys ages 4 and 7. Have my hands full but for a good cause. Glad this summer session will be over by next Thursdays, counting hours and minutes then 5 blessed weeks off before being legally called a "Senior".
