    I just wanted to say hi and thank you for the great intro. I unfortunantly don't have time to write a letter. Here's the short of it. I am 39 going back to school for ADN. (currently waiting to get into a program.)I have four boys 14-9, and also love Jesus. I too was raised catholic and got to know Jesus in 1988. I am thankfouly through my "thumper" stage and I love the hurt, "outcasts" and the "unlovely". Just wanted to let you know your note was so cool to read I had to reply. Hopefully we'll talk more.

    I love how our lives cross and touch one anothers - Jesus take us up! (I'm ready!)

    Good luck!

    Hi everyone! I am from Manila, Philippines. I am 27 years old, and a third year BS Nursing student. I know, I'm too old to still be in school. I finished a different degree some years ago.

    More power!

    Too old is - the check is already cashed at the funeral parlor.

    In other words it is never too late! xo

    Hi everyone! I am also new... just joined this afternoon. I am a mother of 7 year old twin boys and am looking for a career change. I am currently researching and looking at different schools. I am very interested in one school in NYC (where I live), but think I will apply for the 6/2007 program. Need to take my GRE first. It's going to be hard studying again... since I've been out of school since 1998! Well, thanks for welcoming all of us newcomers!

    Hey, welcome to the site!

    I really feel bad when I see all the threads from new people introducing themselves. There's just NO WAY that I could stop and post to each and every one of you!

    So I just wanted to say hey, how are you, and I hope you have a good experience!

    I'm 46, an RN trained in a diploma school in Maine (1981). I've done all kinds of nursing, my favorite being geriatrics, with Chemical Dependency a close second.

    I currently live in Maine, have a 17 year old son (who is just beginning driver ed, ugh!). I'm a Born Again Christian (3 years) but have to say that I am not one of those thumpers, LOL! How that happened is a long strange trip, I started out Catholic, tried all kinds of religion, no religion, etc. Then I ended up in AA (1985). I learned so much about tolerance, and the fact that God works miracles in EVERYONE's life, not just the "special" (wink) people.

    So along with being sober I've also had to deal with my mental health issues, depression/bipolar, anxiety, oh fun fun...

    SO - feel free to say hi, in this thread or through a private note! Happy you are here, lots of wonderful people! God bless! :hatparty:

    Feel free to post on this thread, and if I see you "around" I will say hello!

    :angel2: Don't quite especially if this is what you really want to do. I was not one of the great students either but have my degree and my patients could care less what my GPA was. They want someone to care, listen, and most of all like their job. Trust me no one outside of school cares what your GPA is, or was. Hang in there and it will all work out. God Bless

    Hello all, I'm not a nurse yet, but will be starting on getting my title this spring. Every body says I'm too young since I'm only 17, married and have a baby, and they say I won't make it through, but I'm bound and determind to show them all wrong. My husband and his mother are my big supporters and I want to do them proud! If you have any advice about what I should do to prepare for my classes I'm all ears! -VLane

    My girl, you just did the best thing you could have done and that is to reach out and ask for support! I am WAY impressed with you and I have NO DOUBT that you will do well!

    Just stick around this board, hang out in the "break room" section, check out the student nursing section, and any other topics you like. There are other young mothers on the site too who are just starting school.

    YOU GO GIRL! :hatparty: :Melody: :chuckle :chuckle

    I am feeling very hopeful for you. You have a husband and a mother who are supporting you. Even more so, you have a direction. The rest will be history. Follow your dream ask a lot of questions and talk to people who have already done it. You can do it.

    Study sugestions. Take advantage of study groups. These will be filled with many ladies searching for support and many people with great study ideas. You may bond with a few of them and establish a group that you may travel this road with. I can not emphasize enough the incredible blessing of having like-minded friends to help you through the bumpy times and freinds to share your strenghths with. Next, figure out a pattern of study times and stick with it. Don't let yourself down by procrastinating. It brings on alot of stress if you get behind. And treat yourself to much earnded breaks. Enjoy some time with friends and family away form your books.

    I have more specific study ideas if your interested. Way to go!
