Hello all! Just wanted to post and say hello. I'm a new pre-nursing student (started this spring). Here's a little about myself...
I'm a 38yr old married father of 3 boys (OMG....shhhhhh, don't tell anyone a man is here!! LOL). I've got a bachelors degree in Information Systems. I've been in the IT field for about 12 years now and it hasn't been very rewarding. Medical has always been a secret love of mine. So....here I am.
Needless to say, I've got all my pre-reqs with exception to my sciences...so that's where I am. Now I'm trying to figure out if I want to go for an LPN and get to work as I bridge to an RN, or just go for the BSN right off the bat. I have all the typical issues it seems....how much will it cost, what to do with the kids, how much time will it require, what will I make, how can I survive this madness???????????
Anyway....I'm in my first Biology class along with an online Psych class. I'm already feeling stressed with the amount of info you have to absorb. I haven't been in a classroom in 10 years!!
Helpful, encouraging words are definitely needed...along with a dose of reality.
Happy to be here and looking foreward to the future.
Oh...after eating chinese today, I got a fortune that I thought was fitting....."Use your abilities at this time to stay focused on your goal. You will succeed!"
