    Hello,
    I am 18 going on 19 and I am just finishing my pre reqs so I will start nursing school next fall at MCV School of Nursing in Richmond, Virginia.
    I am really enjoying reading all of the posts here. They really help put things into perspective. The people who work with us at school don't always tell us the truth. Its nice to hear it.

    Hi i just thought i would share a little about myself. I too am a student and i attend Roane State community college in Harriman, TN and will receive my A.S. of Rn in may.

    I was born and raised in Myrtle Beach, SC. I am 32 yrs old and married to a wonderful man of almost 12 yrs of marriage now. I came to East TN to go to UT with a major of Business Education(hey im still gonna be a teacher right?) I decided after 3 yrs of schooling that i hated business classes and that if I was going to be a stay at home mom, what good would a degree to me? LITTLE DID I KNOW! LOL

    Anyhow needless to say, I have both of my kids in school now and this was just perfect timing(with the good Lords help all the way) to go back to school.

    I live in harriman, TN but i lived in knoxville for 10 yrs. I would really like to get into NICU or intermediate care nursery when i graduate, and i would like to get back home to my hometown and family in Myrtle Beach or near there.

    Well enough said and nice to meet you! Tracy

    G'Day

    I did my intro in the Australasian discussions yesterday, so I'll make this intro brief. I started 2003 doing B. of Nursing and deferred 1 one month into the course. Great experience in such a limited amount of time, but after speaking to the coordinator I set my sights on doing B. of nursing science next year - Most definitely a challenge and very much ready to begin

    Hi all! I have been lurking for a while, finally got up the nerve to post for the first time. I am 28, and my man and I have no kids (unless you count the furry ones!). We have 3 cats and 3 chihuahuas (hence the username) due to the fact that I used to work in a vet hospital. I am not in nursing school yet, just getting going on the prereq's ( I already have a degree but I need a few more classes before I apply). I have already learned so much from just reading the posts. I think this will be a great resource for me, thanks in advance for all the help!

    Hi, my name is Shannon. I am 21 and a senior nursing student at Avila University. I hope to graduate in May and I am not sure how I feel about that. Part of me is excited and the other part of me is terrified. I am hoping talking to people will help.
    I don't know, anything at this point will probably help.
