    Hi everyone, my name is Kevin and I am 33. I have been reading a lot of messages on this site for the last few weeks. I am hooked! I am finding that I am spending way too much time on this site each time I sit down at the computer. However, I am getting a lot of great information. After spending years working on a computer science degree, I have now changed my interest to nursing. Luckily I have finished almost all the prerequisites and have applied for the RN program this fall. I am excited and ready to start. I am glad to see so many helpful and encouraging people. This is a great site!

    Kevin

    Hey everyone! My name is Sue and I'm 34. I am married to a youth pastor who will be graduating from grad school in May so this fall will be MY TURN to go back to school. We have two kids, 11 & 8. I started nursing school in '86 at 18 years old and loved it but couldn't handle being yelled at by my instructors ( I was a very sheltered child ) so I switched to business. Now after 14 years of totally tedious office work (I love to work with people) I am now going back to finish what I started. I am so excited! I have been reading all these posts all week and they just get me more and more ready to go. I look forward to many chats with all of you!

    Hi! My name is Tricia and I am in my second semester of a 2 year ADN program. I hope to graduate in May 2004. I have been married to a wonderfully, romantic man for 11 1/2 years. I have 2 boys 8 & 3 and a beagle who thinks he's my baby. If you would have told me that was going to be a nurse when I was 20, I would have told your crazy. However, I truly believe I have found my calling. I look forward to clinicals every week. I have been looking at this board for the last couple of days and have had a lot of my own questions answered. I look forward to future discussions and hope I can be of help and answer some of your questions. Good Luck to you all and keep striving for your dreams.
