    Hi everyone!

    I just noticed that I haven't posted an introduction...duh!

    I am 34, mother of three ages 14, 10, and 5. I have been married for 16 years on June 10. I started college and took most of my pre-nursing classes from 1998-2001, then I became pregnant with my son. I decided to put everything off until he was in school. Now, he'll be in school all day next year and I was accepted on my first try to a highly competitive program for August 2007 and I am extremely proud of myself! I am beginning to get a little nervous about juggling everything, but I figure that if I couldn't do it, then I probably wouldn't have been accepted anyway. I'm a firm believer that everything happens for a reason. I think this site will be one of my lifelines!

    Anyway, hello to all!

    hi everyone,
    I am 37 yrs old , married with 3 kids- 11, 9 and 7. This will be my second degree. I had work very hard getting a high GPA on my prerequisite courses to get a good chance of geeting into a nursing program. I just got accepted to 3 nursing schools and I'm having a hard time deciding which one to choose. All the same, I am looking foward to starting school in August. My husband is alraedy bracing himself to be a "single father" , but he knows there is a bright light shinning at the end of the tunnel. Good luck everyone!

    Hello to the 215,840 allnurses members!! I am 29 years old. My sweet husband and I have been married for over 6 years, no kids yet and I'll be in my fourth year of BSN this June. I've been too shy to post messages before so I hope to meet some nursing students and nurses to share experiences with and all. I've been rotated in the E.R. and O.R. and I can already see myself working for either of these areas in the near future. I am also interested in being an CRNI (if my brain and hands can still take it). I love this website and I love to read that I’m not alone in what I’ve been going through as a nursing student. More power to the allnurses team and members!!!

    Hey everyone, I am 22 yr old 3rd semester nursing student of ADN. It's a four semester program and planning to finish up in May 2008. I'll actually be starting 3rd semester in August and I am very nervous because the last two semesters has been very cruel (sigh). Thankfully I am not married or have any kids so I have all the time in the world to spend on my studies. Best of luck!!!!

    Hi Everyone!

    I am a busy mom with four kids, ranging from age 2 - 19. I've wanted to be a L&D nurse since the day my first child was born! I returned to school about a year and a half ago, finishing up prerequisites. I just received my acceptance letter last Friday and will be attending nursing school this fall! I'm excited and nervous... Anyone have advice in juggling school and family? I've done well so far, but I'm nervous that nursing school will just be more intense. Anyone know of good scholarship resources?

    I look forward to chatting with you!

    Hello, Everyone!

    My name is Laurel. I am 40 years old, married with two children (ages 11 and 14) . I am starting an LPN program (that will actually give me an associate's degree) on June 25, and I'm excited and nervous.

    This is a second career for me. (In my "previous" life, I was a teacher). I have always wanted to be a nurse, and now that dream is going to come true!

    It's great to "meet" everyone!
