    LPN-Future RN... You are right about making time for family and self.

    One thing that works to clear my head is exercise. I have to get my exercise. It's the only thing that clears my head. And, lately I've been forcing myself to do it....

    I do have some good news..... Originally, I was scheduled to start Nursing I in Fall '03. Well, I got a letter from the Nursing Dept. at the college stating a vacancy for Spring '03. I start Nursing I in January!!!

    Hello to All,

    I'm also starting a new career! I'm 40 something with 3 kids (16, 12, & 10), 1 husband of 20 years, 1 dog and 2 cats.

    Last fall I started on my pre-req's in order to apply to the nursing program in May 2003. It's been a long road. Since my math wasn't all that good, I've had to work my way up the ol' math ladder. In January 2003 I will take Applied Algebra and Biology and then I will be qualified to apply. Just hope I can get in the class starting Fall 2003.

    Good Luck to all and I hope to see alot more of this board. It's great! It really keeps me motivated

    Sherry's my shoulder to cry on! My decision to finally get off my booty and become a nurse is partly because of her!
