    I'm 39 and a first-time single mom of a 3 yr old girl I adore. After 15 yrs in non-profit Social Services and 3 yrs at home with my daughter, I've decided I want to be a registered nurse. It's a bit scary starting over, but I'm getting excited. I'll be starting classes in the fall and I 'm sure to visit this wonderful place often. I've already laughed, growled, whooped, and almost cried cruising around this site these past few days. I'm really glad to be here.

    Love and much respect,
    Aulani
    Welcome to the greatest group of people you will find Aulani. But i think that antidepressant # is more like 65%...Nursing is stressful, and anyone that tells you different is either a sorry nurse that doesnt care or very lazy. It gets depressing at times but the final rewards are worth the stress. That is why they make those little pills to get us through. But I would not change my career for anything. I love being a nurse and I and most others do make a difference. It has been 26 years and I hope I am healthy enough to do another 26.hmmmm that would make me 72...wellllllllllll let me go ahead and get my walker out and greas it up so it will be ready to use, as i push my med cart beside of it!!!:chuckle I LOVE nursing and hope you will be as happy as i have been Aulani. GOOD LUCK! and if you need help, we are here, you have our email addresses, just write, ask and we all will help out.
