    anyone currently taking classes. Would love to discuss how you are studying, my study skills suck. I go from one thing to another, and at the end of the day I feel like I accomplished nothing any one else feel like this? or is it just me......my 12 yr old says it is just me lol
    FIRST OFF I HAD TO PUT SCHOOL ABOVE ALL ELSE- ABOVE ME, KIDS, HUSBAND, WORK ETC. THEN SOME OF US WOULD GET TOGETHER THE DAY BEFORE EXAM TO COLLABERATE. I DIDNT THINK THIS WOULD WORK FOR ME BUT YOU WOULD BE SUPRISED. WHEN I AM LISTENING TO MY PEERS EXPLAIN SOMETHING I CAN FIGURE IT OUT EASIER - USUALLY LOL. ALSO I MAKE MY OWN FLASH CARDS. ITS CHEAP (JUST GET RECIPE CARDS) AND I CAN DO THEM ON MY WALKS(STRESS RELEIVER) AND WHEN IM COOKING OR GIVING BABY A BATH ETC. ASK QUESTIONS!!! ASK YUOR TEACHERS, AND CLASSMATES. REMEMBER SOMEONE ELSE MY BE WONDERING THE SAME THING TOO. THEIR ARE NO STUPID QUESTIONS....JUST STUPID MISTAKES MADE BY PEOPLE WHO DIDNT UNDERSTAND WHAT THEY WERE DOING, AND LEARN TO PROIRITIZE. I ALSO HAD TO PSYCHOLOGICALLY CHANGE MY WAY OF THINKING ABOUT STUDYING. I LOOKED AT IT AS TIME FOR MYSELF. I DONT KNOW IF U HAVE LITTLE KIDS BUT WHEN MY HUSBAND COMES HOME FROM WORK HE TAKES OVER (FOR THE MOST PART LOL) AND I GO IN ANOTHER ROOM AND STUDY. I WORK, HAVE 4 BOYS AGES 2-9 AND A SICK FATHER I TAKE CARE OF. I HAVE A 3.8 GPA AND AM PROUD OF IT- I NEVER CARRIED A GPA LIKE THAT IN HIGH SCHOOL LOL. HOPE THIS HELPS- ITS HELPED ME.

    babynursewannab,
    Hey we must be twins. I'm 35, 2 girls (11 & 3), married to a wonderful man, but he cannot take care of himself or just doesn't want to. The whole time i'm cooking supper, and then we sit down to eat, he doesn't talk much, or the girls, but when i'm done taking care of them and go to my little study hole on the other side of the house, it's "mom" "hey susan, did I tell you what happened at work today" "Mom the baby's in my room". No let me tell you the best one. When one or all of them come to my hole and ask me "What are you doing". I also feel guilty for not spending "enough" time with my girls so don't feel alone there. I've taken everything I need to start the LPN program in September, but there are only 48 spots and about 200 trying to get in, after LPN I will be looking into BSN. Well good luck with all, hope to here from you soon.

    :roll It's about time we have our own thread going. I was beginning to feel left out..... I'm 31 and only have 7 weeks of my LPN left then I start the RN program in September. I am so excited. I just got a job in a doctor's office. It's not what I want to do after I graduate (I love working in hospitals) but it is good experience. I have 2 kids (5 & 9) and I feel like I am ignoring them since starting the program. We won't talk about what my house looks like.
