    Your wife should do very well given her background. I pray she finds Oklahomans as friendly as I know them to be. Best of luck to you and your family. I like the Oklahoma board on allnurses because it is friendly, encouraging and positive.

    Hi Teebee and GoodOldNurse:

    Thanks for such a wonderful advice and the tips for the success. You are dead on the money about the seniors. More people you talk to more confused you get. Everyone has their own perception about 'hard' and 'easy' and one should not draw conclusions just by listening to what others say. However, as you said...it is OK to be scared and panics when you hear it !!

    I am really touched by the support and advice you guys extend to eachother. I am from an engineering background and had seen fair amount of people around the world as well as fair number of online communities. This place (Oklahoma forum in Allnurses.com) is the best I had seen so far. When I read the posts I can feel the support and concerns from all of you. I sometime wonder how could people be so nice and willing to help when there is so much to do for yourself...Then it hits me...you guys are nurses and 'taking good care of needy' is what you do the best. I really appreciate the support and time you take to listen to eachother and help.

    Thanks again.

    Hello. My name is Nika,and I live in Tulsa(3 years-from Louisiana). I've been working with juveniles for 5+years. I'm looking to make a career change. Married with 0 kids yet. My friend and I will be starting at Tulsa Tech this month for a CNA course. I'm looking to follow the same path as you. I'm just so darn nervous. I have a wonderful support system. How is the program at TTC? I already have a degree in Criminal Justice, and I'm 30. I'm really not interested in my field anymore. A few years ago, I was accepted into a practical nursing program in Louisiana, but I quit before it started. I didn't think I could do it. Well, I'm going to try again!

    Thank you very much! My husband is my strongest supporter. Anybody else, they pause and say, "A nurse, are you sure, that's hard!" On the other hand the nurse at my job is the one who got me started with the idea. I think I can do it, but I'm nervous! My sister-n-law, who is a caregiver, is starting LPN school, after I strongly encouraged her to consider being a nurse. Well, if I don't become a nurse, at least someone will!

    Good luck with your new journey! Should be no problem since you are already an LPN. It seems that when I went to RN school, the gals already working as LPN'S had a huge advantage over us generic students. I had two kids when I started nursing school, it can be challenging but so worth it!!! Good luck again!! Martbabynurse

    I spent my middle school and high school years in Crawfordsville, Indiana. Went to school in Indianapolis and worked some in Lafayette. I absolutely loved the winters there. Autumn was amazing! Of course, I was born in Oklahoma, but I do miss those winters! Martbabynurse

    I am Joe, and I work as an ER Tech at St. John. I live in Tulsa with my wife, who's an RN at St. John. I'm currently going to school at Rogers State, getting my pre-reqs out of the way for the Paramedic program, which starts in Fall. My ultimate goal is to be out in the field as a Paramedic, but I really like the ER I'm at, so I plan to be there awhile, even if I have to go ECB down the road.

    Hi, My name is Kim. I have a wonderful 3 year old son and 2 foster sons ages 12 months and 8 months. I live in the Oklahoma City area and I am currently working at a bank. I am really wanting to get into an LPN program and eventually become an RN. It seems I will have to quit my job to attend the schooling since the classes are during the day. I am taking medical terminology right now and that seems like a tough class.

    Does anyone have any recommendations as to what I can do in the medical field to earn an income while attending the LPN program. Also how hard is it to get into these programs and what school in the Oklahoma City area does anyone recommend?

    Thanks and I look forward to all the helpful advice.

    Hello everyone! :studyowl:I am currently a student @ RSU in claremore. I took my LPN through equiv. and am working at David L. Moss in the infirmary (I love it). I'm married to a wonderful man, without him I may have never followed my dream of becoming a nurse (at almost 40yrs old, although I've heard it is the new 20's). I have a son who is a senior (We graduate the same month). No pets right now life is way to hectic! Hope to get to know with you.
