    Hi All!
    My name is Carl. I am 43 years old, married, with no kids and I will be just starting my preq. next month. Afterwards I hope to start an accelerated BSN degree. I currently have a BSEE and a Masters degree.

    There are two schools near me that have accelerated programs, and their preqs are pretty similar. I will be applying to both of them soon and then I suppose I will have to nail down exactly what I need to take.

    This is a great forum. I look forward to coming here as my new career progresses.

    Oops guess I missed this before...better late than never right?!

    Hi! My name is Shelly and I'm a nursing tudent. (everyone says "hi shelly!")

    I'm 32, married (for 12 1/2 years, but who's counting), 4 kids (18yo stepdaughter, 11 yo girl, 9 yo boy, and 4 yo boy) that's 2 and 2 !!! There shouldn't be anymore!!! 2 dogs: Chainy a pound puppy - boxer mix we've had for 2 years and Emma who's a pure black lab and 4.5 months old (weighing nearly 50lbs!!!!!)

    I'm starting my second semester of a 4 semester ADN program! Almost halfway there!! All my prereqs are done although I found out that to convert to a BSN I need a couple more GEs.

    Loving every minute of nursing school!!! I was born to do this!!

    sorry it took me so long to "introduce" myself!
