    Hi everyone I am new to this site and just love it. I have read some pretty interesting stuff. I am 28 and finishing my prereq's and starting a BSN program in the Spring '06 semester. I can't wait. I have no kids except for my two spoiled westies, Abby and Gus. My mom is a RN so I am trying to keep the tradition going on. I only wish like most of you I started after high school, oh well you are never to old to learn.

    Hi, my name is Debbie and I am a late blooming baby boomer. I am the mother of three grown sons and a wife of 21 years. I will be attending Quinsigamond CC, which is in Massachusetts, this Jan 06. in their ADN program. This month I graduated from local CC with double Associate Degrees in Science, one in Medical Assisting and the other in General. I completed all prereqs for Quinsigamond CC while getting my degrees. Thank God!

    I have been reading all the threads, and I chuckled when I came across the one where the student nurse was going to take her state finals. For one thing I had no idea that the tests were given on computers but what made me laugh was the mention of the barf bags provided. I empathize with her...I had to go and take my Medical Assistant certification exam last weekend and I have been stressed out about it since January. Well, to make a long story short I could have used that barf bag the night before the exam!! Now the 12 weeks of waiting to see if I passed begins.

    I'm so very glad that I have found this site.

    Hi! I will graduate August 12 (and counting) with my BSN. This is my second BS degree. I did an accelerated program in upstate NY that lasted one year.

    Greetings all! I'm 22 work days away from saying "bye-bye" to a 25 year career in IT and "hello" to one in nursing... and I can't wait. Have wanted a career in medicine since grade school, but unfortunately made a decision in the hubris of my youth that took me down the wrong path. While I've enjoyed pretty decent success in IT, it just never "fit."

    Now, with the support of a terrific wife, some lucky business transactions, and undoubted divine intervention at the admissions office, I'll be starting an accelerated BSN program.

    On a rather humorous note, my current boss is insisting that I go on "leave of absence" instead of resigning outright. Not wanting to be overly confident of success, I've agreed. Now, when the subject of school comes up, he smiles and says, "You'll be back." He has no idea....

    Hi Works2xs,
    Congrats on getting accepted! :hatparty: What program did you get into for the accel'd BSN? I did the high tech to nursing switch too! It's a lot of hard work, but you'll enjoy it more than the IT unemployment cycle!

    Nurses are in high demand, so good luck! You have made a big jump from IT to being a Nurse. Nothing is more satsifying then starting your dream then finishing it!

    Hi, I'm Karen, 42, and entering pre-nursing in September at Brandon University, Manitoba, Canada. I have my B.Ed. degree and wanted to get a further degree (speech pathology originally) but got waylaid with 4 kids and life in general. I am really pumped to be going back to school after a 20 year hiatus!! My dh is very excited for me as well, even though it will mean big changes for our family. I will be beginning my one correspondence course (Nutrition) on August 1st and the rest of my classes begin Sept. 7th (60% course load).

    I've been mostly hanging out here [in allnurses.com] at the pre-nursing student forum so far while I've been getting my bearings! WONDERFUL to be here!!!!

    Oh, I forgot to add that I am in a 4 year BN program.
