    Hi,
    I'm 34, married with 3 kids. Being older has definitely been an asset. You have so many life experiences to pull from that you will have an advantage over traditional students. At least this has been my experience.

    ADN= Associate Degree in Nursing, so one can obtain RN license after successfully passing the NCLEX-RN

    [font=Comic Sans MS] My name is Jami. I am 23 yoa, I live in Delaware, and I just started my clinicals this semester. Still in a state of shock i guess i could say, about all the work that is due. Not married, no kids, just a boyfriend of 5 years, Rob. I have worked in Oral Surgery for 4 years, so I kinda have that OR side to me, but I basically am amused with everything!

    [font=Comic Sans MS]Just wanted to introduce myself! Thanks for listening!

    carm, it's a pleasure to meet you! all the best as you begin your program this fall.
    Quote from nemrac
    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 !!!
