    Hi everyone. I don't know why I never posted in this discussion as I've been using this board for some time now. My name is Susan but everyone calls me Suzy. I am 50 years old (egads) and have been accepted to nursing school which I start in August. I am soooo nervous. Being a non-traditional student I question my ability but nursing is what I have always wanted to do. I was accepted to a couple of schools after my h.s. graduation but made some really bad choices at the time and never followed up on my dream until now. Yesterday I got my orientation package from the school and now have to set out to get my student nursing uniforms and get my books. This is getting all too real for me and I want so much to succeed but like I said I'm really nervous--but I guess this is normal (??)
    This is a great website and I look forward to reading and posting a lot more in the future.
    Cheers for now.

    suzy, welcome. you are still young and being a little nervous, in my opinion, is healthy. i am nearing 43 and in my 3rd semester of an rn program.

    you can do it!

    Hello,
    My name is Tammy. I am new here! I found this site a few months ago but I had it on my favorites so I could check it out after finals! I am starting my lower division nursing classes this summer and I will start my upper division in Spring '04 and then graduate in December '05. So far this site has been very informative and I am glad I found it!
