    Hey, all! Yet another non-traditional student chiming in here! I have a BS from a while back in business, have spent a lot of time as a personal trainer/medical exercise specialist and as a massage therapist. I loved those two jobs, mainly because I enjoyed so much helping other people deal with many pain issues I could well relate to. It's fun when you can give people a way to learn to help themselves, but since my mother's battle and subsequent death from cancer, I've felt the need to do more -- I'm sure a lot of you know what I'm talking about.

    Anyway, since I already had a degree, most of my requirements for the ADN program I'm starting transferred, and I'm just finishing up my science classes (final micro exams this Wednesday). I start my 2-year evening/weekend program at the end of the month; we'll have lecture and seminar on Mon/Wed from 6-9:30, then every other weekend from 7-4 is either skills lab or clinical. I'm excited to get going and hope my full-time job (office for now) will last me through most of my schooling, as being single I can't do without the income. Thank heavens I was fortunate enough to receive a nursing scholarship through my school, or it would be a tight squeeze for sure. But there is always, always a way to get through, and nothing is gonna stop me!

    Good luck to all you new students! I hope to meet some of you as the school year progresses!

    Hi. I am (yet) another nontraditional student, 46, and am starting clinicals in two weeks. I have all my academic classes out of the way, so will just have the nursing courses -- I think 8 credit hours total this semester.

    I have been going to school for three years part-time (I work full time) and now that the moment is here for the nursing classes to actually start, I confess I am a bit apprehensive.

    I am so glad to have found this group!

    I'm so glad to be getting into the nursing classes finally! I got a small taste last semester with pharmacology (had to get permission to take it since it's usually taken in the 4th semester of nursing, but at least that's one less class I'll have in my last semester!)

    Hello again folks. I didn't give up entirely. :-) I'm registered for Psych 101 and a Nutrition course this fall (mornings). I'll get my Math and Chemistry to done in the afternoons, and hopefully with that I'll be ready to present a better application when they become available in December.

    PS: I got a wicked sunburn today helping out Habitat for Humanity!
