most exciting week of my life

  1. I just wanted to say hello to all my fellow students and nurses!

    I am a single, 23 yr old, mother - working in retail (yuck)

    Tuesday was my very first day of an 18 month LPN program - this week has been THRILLING....I am so excited about everything....I'm just giddy ! I plan to go back to school for my BSN eventually but this is the best plan for me now being poor and raising a 16 month old - and it's okay with me! Anyway....I look forward to getting to know you all better...good luck to you all in school!!!

    Any advice to a new student is much appreciated!!!

    WELCOME !! nice to have you here !!

    Claire, you will find some really good tips, advice on this BB, you came to the right place !!

    Don't be afraid to post or ask any questions

    I guess my best advice right now is keep enjoying your program as it sounds like you really like it so far, that's good. A positive attitude really helps overall.

    Congratulations on your decision to go into nursing. I just finished my LPN year in the beginning of August. You are in for some struggles and rewards as a student in the nursing programs. Keep your strength throughout this year and you will accomplish your goals. Also, study as much as you can.
