Introduction

  1. Hello everyone. I just found this site tonight while I was surfing the net. Glad I did. I'm just beginning this whole educational process in January at St. John's College of Nursing of SBU in Springfield, MO. I look forward to visiting this site often and learning and sharing with all of you. What's it going to be like for a 40 year old man in nursing school?

    Welcome.

    You might a minority in your class, and you won't "click" with everyone, especially the younger females. But otherwise it will be great. Good luck!

    Thanks,Tweety, for moving this post to it's own thread. Hello,mkmdbm7 and ozarks prd mom, it's great to meet you both. I am just starting out in all this and will begin pre-req's in January. God willing I'll try to be accepted into the nursing program Spring '08. My sister, who also lives in Monett, is going to school also so I'm definitely going to turn her on to this site. It's been great fun so far reading thru all the threads. Look forward to hearing from you again. Rich

    to allnurses! You will find alot of helpful info here, and support. You will read alot of vents, but those are here to help us sound off things that frustrate us, not a bad thing.
