    Hi! This is Montien...37 yo, former Army LPN (Hoo-Ah), currently employed as a "Nurse Coordinator" for a great company in Phila., and in my Junior year a LaSalle University's "LPN to BSN" program; graduation in May 2004!! I am also a full-time mother to a 12 yo son and a part-time mother to a 24 yo daughter (who has been living on her own for the past five yrs...what was I thinking when I wanted another baby?)
    Nursing has afforded me the opportunity to learn about people from many nations and cultures and has allowed me to develop some lifelong skills that I can transfer into any other area of life. It's all I know and is not only what I do, but a special part of WHO I am! ;-)

    Hi, my name is chris, I'm 37, married 13 yrs, mommy to Timmy who just turned 2 in dec. I finally decided what I wanted to be when I grow up I want to be a nurse! I have been going to school p/t for the last few years, so all I've got left are clinicals and I get to start in Mid January-YaY! I also work full time in production work, so this is going to be a challenge, but a welcome one. Goodluck to all.:-)

    Since there are no men represented here yet, let me introduce myself to you all. I am a second semester nursing student in a five semester program. I am 48 years old and finally getting to attain my dream of becoming a nurse. I have successfully raized two children (ages 24 and 26) and now it is my turn. Good luck to all and with the grace of God we can do this!!!
