    Marci - It's funny because I considered going back to school to be a Paralegal, but I kept leaning toward the nursing field, plus I have a friend who works as a legal secretary and kept telling me I would be bored. I know I won't be bored doing nursing, that's for sure. So I am beginning my nursing courses next month. I'm so excited, but scared also.

    good luck in your courses and your pursuit in nursing.

    Thanks Debi! I agree with your friend- I became bored as a Paralegal. There was too much document handling and not enough challenge. The only real challenge was trying to get my inbox cleared out! Good luck to you, I think that we'll both love nursing!

    I've been visiting this site for quite some time and finally decided to register. I am in my final semester of nursing school -ADN program. It's nice to meet people in the same boat. :chuckle
    Nursing school is challenging; it's nice to have a place to come chill out.

    Hi,
    I'm 28, married with a 3 year old... I'll start my pre-q's in the fall...
    Thought about doing the LPN thing first but then got hooked onto being an RN because it was better for me (as I had so many college credits from being undecided for so long..lol)
    Anyway I hope nursing will keep me challenged... Nice to meet everyone can't wait for the semester to start!!!

    My name is Jennifer and I am 24 years old. I live in Indiana with my husband of two years, my wonderful dog , and spoled cat. I am starting back to school this fall after being out for about 2 1/2 years. I will be taking pre-reqs this semester then I don't know what I will do until I can get into the School of Nursing probably next year hopefully. I am scared that I won't make it into the program. I have always loved the medical field. My Dad is a paramedic and my step-mom works in the ER. I have grown up around this my whole life and I can't wait to be a part of it. I am hopeing to meet and become friends with a lot of you.

    Hi everyone, My name is Tammy, I am 35 years old, Married to a wonderful supportive husband ( I thing the Spouses of nursing students are special people for putting up with everything involved in nursing school :angel2: ) I have a 11 year old daughter Heather, who has Type 1 diabetes. ( :angel2: I know I am biased: but I think She is a very special kid to put up with everything involved in her life)

    I was always interesed in Nursing, but when I graduated high school I went to work in Banking and Finance. I always planned on going back to school, but I got comfortable in the job I was in and spent 15 years there. When Heather was diagnosed with Diabetes, That was the perfect opportunity for me to full fill my lifelong dream of becoming a nurse, while educating myself of how to better handle my daughters medical condition. I am in my 3rd semester of an ADN program, 3 down, and 2 to go,

    When I started, I had every intention on becoming a Diabetes Educator, but now I am torn. This semester we are working our labor and delivery rotation, and I love it. So I guess I will work labor and delivery when I graduate while I take classes to get my BSN which is required for Diabetes Educator. That gives me at least a couple of years to decide what I want to be when I Finish.

    [b][size=3]i've been away for a number of months renovating a house i purchased, trying to get through school and starting a new pca job that is an hour's drive. in reading this post there are a lot of new people, but thankfully, i did recognize some of the names as well.

    a little about myself...my name is shonda, i'm 39 (ugggghhh) years old, divorced mother of two (grant - 11 and now in middle school and madison - 6 in the first grade). besides school and work, i am busy with the activities of my children which include 4-h, clover kids, dance/drill team/tumbling, and who knows what else will come up this year and an active member of the sna at my cc.

    my pets include 8 horses, 1 rabbit, and thinking of getting my daughter a puppy for her birthday in november.

    without going into a lot of detail, i was supposed to be moving up to my third semester of four this fall with graduation in may 2003; however, i am having to start over, so i will be starting first semester tomorrow (sept. 3) and graduating in may 2004...just shy of my 41st birthday.

    well, i guess that's enough for now. i'm glad to be back here and i'm going to catch up on posting as quickly as i can. take care and god bless each and everyone of you.

    Hi I'm Dianne (well duh......:chuckle )
    I'm 39 and holding, I'm an LPN who, 12 years ago, failed :imbar Med Surg 2 in the RN program. From there I went on to get my LPN. Now, hopefully a wiser person, I am once again trying to grab the elusive RN.
    This semester I am taking (retaking) Microbiology, since it's been over 10 years. I have Pharmocology and a computer class left before I bridge in May.
    Our bridge program consist of a one-day a week program which scares me to death! My husband, who is also an LPN, is also in school with me and hopes to bridge at the same time.
    Our oldest child just got married Aug, 31st, and our youngest is 14 (just started highschool).
    We also work at the same hospital, 12 hr shifts 7P-7A, but different areas, he's med surg, I'm OB/ER.
    I have enjoyed getting to know people at this site, and would welcome emails, I love to talk.......LOL....
