Future Tennessee Nurse

  1. Greetings! I am excited to have stumbled upon this site. I am "Faith." It's so nice to have others who've already gone down the road that I'm about to travel, to talk with. I will be starting the RN training classes Feb. 2007. As of Jan. 12 I will begin my college courses (prereqs). For about the past 30 years I have been a stay at home MOM with raising ten children, (2 still at home, (9 and 13). I'm looking forward to my Nursing career. I have questions that I'm sure you all could help answer.
    TTL! :spin:

    Thanks to all for the warm welcome! I realize I'm starting a bit late in the game, but with God's help I know I can do it. I've raised 10 children practically single-handedly, written a children's safety book, (to help protect them from predators), of which I'm looking for an Illustrator for, a Memoir (published) and currently have a parental advise column in the local newspaper. My Compass scores say I must take ALGEBRA (Elem. and Intermediate.) Is there a pill out there that makes (Algebra) a bit easier to swallow? To me raising ten children was much easier than learning Algebra. Well I guess it's going to be inch by inch. CIAO

    WELCOME Forever10!!!!! You've stumbled on a great site (at least in my experience ) I'm just a little way down that road you're starting (May 2007 I'll be a TN nurse!!!). I have found that there is no to truth to starting out late as you will find on this board and in school. I'm 34 and nowhere near the oldest in my class. It brings a little more "life experience" as my favorite instructor likes to tell me. Good luck with school and ask away!

    Welcome to the board. I'm in Tennessee also. What part are you in?
  14. by   Forever10
    I'm in Beechgrove, will be attending Motlow's spring session if everything works out. I just pray my brain kicks in and I can retain everything to get my RN. Raising ten kidz has singed a few brain cells...if ya know what I mean.
