    Hi! I'm new here. My real name is Pam. I'm 33, married with four children: girls are 10 and 8 and boys are 4 and 18mths. I'm an accelerated BSN student just finishing my first of three semesters. Surprisingly, my children still know me despite my long hours of being at class or clinical and studying when at home. I'm loving this though! Have never been so happy with my "job" in my entire life. I was all about science and computers in my "previous" life so this is a big career change for me. Looks like this will be a great message board and I look forward to talking to you all.

    Hi! I'm 28 (married, no kids...not yet anyway unless you count my husband) and I start my first semester of a four semester ADN program in the fall. I'm in the process of getting everything ready....Making sure my sweet husband has plenty of tv dinners, I have all my vaccinations and physical, ordering all those EXPENSIVE books (amazon is great) and I just ordered my scope (master classic II ) and all that fun stuff. I'm soooo ready to jump in feet first!

    I'm so glad I stumbled across this site. I'm sure I'll be asking tons of idiotic questions over the next year and a half or so. I'm warning you now!

    Glad to meet all of ya!

    Good luck to all!

    Thanks Jen! Feeling a little scared now. First placement is only 3 days away. I have 5 days in a nursing home and the week after 5 days in Westmead hospital which is the largest teaching hospital in New South Wales. Should be an awesome experience!! Have a great day!

    HI i'm Krissy,

    21 in July and am in my 5th of 6 semesters of a Registered Nurses degree (which is different to the American classification of an RN). I live at home, am single and no chance of kiddies for a long while. Working part time at a local nursing home- hard work and learnt that i definately don't want to spend the rest of my years working with geriatrics it's too hard, too sad when everyone dies or gets sick and their is little to do other then paper work and the occasional giving of a pill.

    Hello Everyone!!!!!!!!!
    My name is Kris and I am 25 and married. I am currently in my first semester of pre-reqs for a ADN program. I have a BS degree in Geology and I am currently a environmental consultant. I was a nursing student right out of high school but I decided it would be more fun to classes with my future husband so I changed majors but I have found my way back and I am so excited. Since I already have a degree, I only have 2 classes to take before I can apply to the program. I am going to be a nurse!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
