    Hi Everyone,
    I'm Jane, 32 and from Hertfordshire, UK.
    I am just applying to start an access to nursing course (in sept) and will then continue to uni for 3 years for a nursing course.

    I am looking to go into oncology and was looking for a friendly community with advice on how to proceed etc.

    I'm married and have one daughter of 5 (now in full time school). It's v.scary facing 4 years of plans and then a totally new career!
    I have never been in the position to go to college/uni till now though.

    Anyway... think I've rattled on enough for now! hehe

    Hello everyone.
    I am Shel. I'm a 23 year old female who lives in Buffalo, NY with my husband of 3 years. I just decided that I wanted to be a Nurse so I'm just finishing up my Anatomy I and a few other introductory Nursing classes at my local community college. My goal is to become a Nurse Practitioner. I'm having a blast in Nursing and enjoying school for the first time ever.
    My interests are the environment, spirituality, rock music, dogs, and nursing and medicine of course!

    I have been addicted to this site for a very long time. To escape studying for finals, I finally registered. Anyways, I am finishing pre-reqs next week and start the RN program in Sept at a community college here on Long Island. I'm from Indiana, but met my husband while we were both in the Navy. 17 years and 3 children later, daughter 16, son 14, daughter 4 (surprise!!) Life is good.
