    Full or part time?
    I'm a full time student in my first semester of a four semester BSN program

    Work?
    I work very very part time---usually only one or two days a week. But so far, the work schedule has worked out very well.

    Age?
    Well.......I just celebrated the 3rd anniversary of my 25th birthday.

    Single or Married?
    Single

    Children?
    No

    Other degrees?
    Nothing official, but I have enough hours for a bachelors degree. Too bad I kept changing my major.


    Ideal nursing position?
    Hopefully, after I get my master's degree, I will end up in either forensics or research.

    Why nursing?
    I've always been interested in the medical field, and the flexibility of nursing appeals to me.


    Great thread!!!! Thank you for starting it.

    >>Full or Part time student?
    I'm taking 12 hours, so is that FT? Not really sure, my college sucks and I don't even have an advisor.

    >>Do you work and go to school?
    Yes, I work full-time as an engineering clerk and am just taking pre-reqs online. I was planning on getting a BSN, but will be applying to the ADN program for fall of 2003 (since I'm impatient and they don't have any programs starting in January in my state... unless someone else knows about any in Mississippi?)

    Age? 25
    Married
    Two boys: 4 years and 8 mos
    No other degrees

    Ideal nursing position? No idea, maybe L&D/CNM, ICU, ER?

    Why you chose nursing? I'm absolutely fascinated by medicine and have always wanted a career in a healthcare field... I'm too old/poor to go to med school (which was my original goal/dream), so I'm pursuing nursing instead

    Hi I'm Heather, welcome! I'm a full time mom and part time student (though I've got homework fulltime!) I am finishing up my pre-req's HOPEFULLY this year. Applying for next fall in Feb. I have a BA in Sociology, bygum, it's coming in handy too! I also have a teaching credential and teaching secondary experience. I have 2 wonderful sweet kids, 7 and 10 boy and girl. I am 40 years old and loving this new decade of age. I have a honey of a husband, that I'm still training but love anyway :0
    I think I want to go into NICU for the same reason that I became interested in nursing. I went through a painful yet beautiful experience of losing my baby to anencephaly. I had an angel of a nurse who helped me walk through it. I would be privileged to help someone else walk through. I mean, what an amazing life to come home feeling you might have helped someone with pain beit emotional/physical etc. How meaningful.
    I also chose it because I see it being a great "family" job, and the great diversity within the job itself. (I get ansy to change jobs about every 3-5 years. Perfect job! Good luck to all of us! To glorify God! Heather

    I would like to work in the NICU.
    I have wanted to be a nurse since I was a little girl. The human body and how it functions is so fascinating to me.
    I should be done with my pre-req's and starting Nursing School next fall
