1. Hello to everyone!!

    I have never posted on this wonderful site and I have no idea why. For the last TWO years, I have quietly and oftentimes enviously read each and every inspiring story and right now, I feel like I want to personally hug Lunah, seusquatch and many others. I Did not start taking my classes until November 08 and have taken 8 exams in 5 months!!! My last exam was ECE A&P, which I thought I would fail and made an A. I only gave myself two weeks to study. Thanks to A&P Made Incredibly Easy, Studygroup 101 and of course, EC practice exams. I hope that anyone else who reads this and is struggling with the idea that all of this seems so distant and unattainable, it isn't. I received my letter in the mail today stating "CPNE ELIGIBLE." WOW. I'm 42, spent most of my adult life a single mom, surgical tech, then an LPN and all along working with people that are "23" BSN grads and at the LTAC where I work, I'd have to wait for THEM to come and push drugs for me, or hang blood, etc. That too, inspired me to move forward. I know I have alot to prepare for, but reading notes from Lunah, etc., gives me hope. Thanks again to all of you.

    congratulations!!! i know that has to be the most wonderful feeling yet! i am an adult student too, and you are so right! it is very motivating to me to have to wait on "these young kids" to help me out, knowing that i have the brains to do it, just not the license to allow it yet. good luck on this next step, i'm sure you are going to do great!

    that's very inspiring, thanks! Right now I am struggling with how to study for my first exam, and how to pay for them all, and how to get to the end! I am glad to see another success story!
