    I am 34, married with a 10 month old. I already have a bachelor degree and a master of public health. Hoping to be accepted into a nursing program this fall. Waiting for letters is soooo hard!

    Hi! I'm 37, married with 4 children (ages 15, 10, 7, and 5). I finished my pre-reqs last semester and will be applying to the RN program in 2 weeks !!! We have a pretty long waiting list at my college, so I might not be starting for a year. I'm taking a CNA class right now.
