    Hello,

    My name is Jodi. I am 32, married five months to the man of my dreams. I have four kids of my own - 13, 11, 8, and 5, first and last are boys - and two of hubby's, ages 26 and 24 (he's 17 yrs older). I have been an overnight hotel manager for a couple of yrs now, but my true calling has reached deafening shouts! I have decided to take it step by step and I will start CNA on November 15th and quit my current job in January. Hallelujah!! Hopefully I can get into the July 2003 LPN program, otherwise I'll start that in Jan 2004. Then the AS/RN, then the Bachelor's, then the Master's... God willing, I will get a CNA job at one of the hospitals here and they'll pay for all the rest.

    Great to meet you, thanks for having me!

    Jodi

    Hello All ,

    My name is Mastura and I am from Singapore. I am 26 years old. have been an Enrolled Nurse for about 6 years and currently pursuing my Diploma In Nursing to be an RN. Hopefully, I'll graduate by July 2004. In my 2nd Year/1st Semester.

    First time in here... Purpose I guess is to make more friends and just to find out what nursing is like, studies or the nursing care itself in other countries. Hope to hear from yuo guys soon. Thanks. Bubbye.

    Hi, I'm 42, done with all pre-reqs and co-reqs and am now taking my nursing exams, via a virtual college. If I could have afforded 1/2 pay while I went the traditional route of the 4 semesters of nursing I would have graduated Dec 2003, now I could be graduating (with full pay, since I'm able to work full time), Spring 2003 and take my NCLEX in June 2003!! That will be a true summer of love LOL

    I know what you mean!! I have two sons (14 and 15) that keep me always on the go. My husband works long hours, so after working all day, I come home to their homework, dinner, dishes, laundry, clean up, chauferring the kids to where ever, It doesn't stop, but I have to squeeze studying in as well.

    Don't give up! It will happen!! Good luck to all!!!
