New Member

  1. This is my first entry in the nurses forum. I am changing careers. I was laid off of my job last year and decided to go into nursing. I wanted to go into medicine when I was younger, but never did.

    I have a psychology degree but spent most of my career in the computer field. I am currently completing the prerequisites for a nursing program and have applied to 6 schools. I hope that I get accepted somewhere.

    I hope to learn a lot from this forum.
