    Hello Hello!

    My name is Heather. I'm 25 years old, married, and getting ready to start my 3rd semester of school. Started nursing school fall '06, but took a year off because I had a beautiful baby girl (turning 1 this August). Nothing like getting pregnant in the middle of nursing school...obviously I wasn't working hard enough lol!

    Was a CNA for 6 years before starting school, and am definately ready to get this over with and back in the workforce.

    Good luck to everyone!!

    Hi All,

    I am 39yo, married for 17 years, and have a 14yo daughter (school is hard enough then I come home to a hormonal teen ;-). I am done for the summer, yeah! I will start my 3rd qrter out of 6 in the fall, which is L&D and peds. Long-term goal is to get my RN, work in crit. care, get a BSN, then if I am still sane enough, get a CRNA. It's early though, may change my mind. That's what's so great about nursing, you can do one thing for a while then do something totally different when you get tired of it.

    Was (and still am ) a veterinary technician for 9 years. Going from 4 legged to 2 legged. Believe it or not from what I have seen in clinicals human patients are more sane than pet owners. :chuckle

    It's nice to be in web community where we all know what each other is going through.

    Congratulations to you!! Did you have to wait a long time? I waited about 2 years once I got on the "list" but I had to take a few refresher classes before I could get on the list, so it has been a long haul for me. Enjoy your summer with your family, because life will change for all of you once you start school, just keep reminding them how wonderful the pay off will be in the end when you are a Nurse and your time will be yours again. Best Wishes to you!!
    Thanks This was my first time applying. I took 2 years to complete the prerequisites. I was limited by not being able to apply to programs outside my city so I am SO grateful to have been accepted in my first attempt! I am definately going to make the most of this summer, visiting family and getting my house in order!

    I, too, am a veterinary technician: 12 years. My veterinary collegues all go "Ugh, why do you want to work with humans?" I am in my final quarter before the dreaded NCLEX. Just trying to keep it together and get through. Best of luck to everyone.

    Oh, no children without fur or feathers: a dog, three cats, and a cockatiel.
