    Hi Everyone!

    I am a 27 y/o new nursing student - a junior, at the University of Oklahoma (we do our prereqs first and then the last two years are all nursing once we are accepted to the college). I will graduate in May 2006 with a BSN. I am engaged and plan to marry next July 23rd to my boyfriend of 2 1/2 years who is a pilot in the Air Force. I was a medic and EMT in the Army prior to starting college.

    Hope to see you around the boards!

    Hi all!

    My name is Leslie and I am in my first semester of an ADN program in Texas. I have two boys--8 & 22 months--so it can be a little challenging to do all my reading, especially when I hear, "Mommy--play--please". I will graduate in May 2006--it can't come soon enough!!

    hi everyone. i'm new to this site and interested in starting nursing school either this coming summer or fall. a little about me: i am 23 with a bachelors degree in psychobiology from ucla. around the end of my senior year i decided that i wanted to become a nurse. this past year i have been taking the prerequisites not covered by my major and i'm interested in an accelerated bsn or bsn/msn combo. i know i want to be a nurse practitioner eventually.

    I am a 27 year old student and I am in my 2nd semester of the ADN program. I graduate in Dec. 2005. I work 34 hours a weekd and I am in school about 15 hours a week. Is anyone else as stressed and is it me or does it seem like you learn something and it just slips right out. Any advice on how to organize time between real life, work, and school and still remain level headed??

    Congratulations on making it so far into the program. I can't wait to be where you are in a little while. Can you share any study tips to make this any easier?
