    Hello everyone!!
    I am 27. I have 3 kiddos~~8y/o boy, 3 3/4 y/o boy, 2 y/o girl. I will be starting my nursing courses in August. Just received my letter this month. I had started Nursing school back in 2004 but due to complications with my pregnancy I wasn't able to go back that winter.
    I am a former Army Medic so hopefully some of it will come back to me. Been awhile.
    So anyhow, here I am getting back into it. This time with 3 kids instead of 1!!:uhoh21:

    Forgot to add that I am happily married!!

    Hi! I'm 39, married, 3 BOYS (12,9,5). Decided after 14 yrs working as an accountant that I wanted to be a nurse, so 2 yrs ago I went back to school. What a shock! Am starting 2nd semester of BSN program this spring. Absolutely love nursing! Don't know why I waited so long. My 1st semester instructor introduced me to this website. I've already found tons of useful info, especially study tips. Can't wait to try them.

    Hi everyone. I've been reading posts on this forum off and on for about a year and finally decided to post because I JUST GOT MY LETTER OF ACCEPTANCE INTO THE NURSING PROGRAM!!!! Wheeeeeeeeeee. I am soo excited. This is a second career for me. I have been a CPA for 20+ years but wanted a change. I am really looking forward to classes starting in January. Can anyone give me an idea of how much time they spend a week in class, lecture, clinic, studying? I am 47, married with 4 children and a dog. Sometimes I wish I was 20 years younger, I feel so old compared to the other students, but there are always a few other older students in my classes, so I don't feel out of place. Good luck to all .

I have wanted to be a nurse since I was little. I am so lucky to have the opportunity to go to school. I love it. I love helping people and cannot wait till I graduate. I am enjoying this website. There are lots of great tips on here. Thank you.
