    My name is Kathy, I am in my final semester, pursuing an ADN degree. My plans are to go to Texas Womens University for the Master's track program which will enable me to work towards a Masters while saving a year of school. I have worked hard for this and I love every aspect of nursing. I still don't know exactly what I want to specialize in, but I currently work on a Neuroscience floor in the Medical Center as a student nurse and I love it. I am very interested in midwifery, trauma and women's services as well. I feel blessed.

    And I am happy to finally have found a board where I can discuss my passion for nursing!

    Hi! I'm Uliana. 23 yo, 2 boys - Mathew 6 years old and Mike 15 months old. Previously psychology student, ex EDI manager for small distribution company, and now accepted (after all the prereqs) in Nursing. It was fun taking care of two kids and taking night classes, and I am just experiencing this blood rush just thinking about starting my "stage" in the hospital as of october. Goal? ER or ICU.

    I'm Maria, mom of four, remarried to a great supportive guy. I've had a miscarriage (7 weeks) and carried my fourth baby to full term where she died nine minutes after birth from anencephaly (discovered at 14 weeks gestation). After that - I can survive anything thrown my way.

    Going back to school to get my ASN. Finishing prereqs this fall (9 credits) and hope to be accepted into the program this comin JAN. I'm a First Responder - Ambulance in a rural town (just passed state test in Feb) My mom always said I should be a RN and now I'm finally listening to her advice.

    we have to move 400 miles but I'll be closer to my other kids. It took God's help to find a rental that would accept our pets and I'll have an 80 mile Round trip commute but...I guess I really want to be a RN.

    I appreciate this board so much as I will be a student again. Thanks to the moderators for their time and effort. I know time is valuable and unpaid out here. my gratitude, Maria

    Hey Maria, welcome to the board. I am so sorry for the loss of your babies, I can't imagine how difficult that must have been for you. You will definitely find this board a great support system in the months to come while you are in school. Take care and again welcome!
