    I'm new here, too. I am starting an accBSN program in May. I already have an MBA and have worked in consulting and project management for a couple of years. I am so excited to get out from behind a desk and actually help people!!!

    Hi There,

    Name is Carm. I'm 30, married and will begin my first semester For RN this fall. I'm currently finishing up my prereqs at Salt Lake Community College(Anatomy and Physiology) I already have a BA in Psych which I got in May of 1999. I will be attending the University of Utah BSN Program-but since I already have a BA I dont have to take any other additional courses other then the specific nursing courses-I only have to put in my 2 years of nursing school. I am currently a Welfare case manager for the State of Utah. Definately not the career I want to be in. I previously worked as a Pscyhiatric Tech-which is where I was first exposed to nursing as a career and have wanted to be a nurse ever since. Now I am working on making that thought a reality !!!

    Nice to meet you Stephanie and Chris. Hello everyone. I've been looking at this site for months and I finally decided to join in. My name's Sheree, 25, no kids, and I will be continuing pre-reqs for my BSN degree starting this summer. I am a second degree student with a BS in Computer Info Systems. I'm also a certified pharmacy technician. This site seems very informative and I have learned so many things from reading these posts. My future plans are to gain nursing experience and become a nurse anesthetist.
