    FUN2CARE,
    You are awesome and you have such a great outlook on life. Once you retire from nursing you should be a motivational speaker, for you have the ability to motivate and encourage any and everyone. Good luck on your journey.

    PS- I love your website.

    Thanks Sunshine Sweetheart!

    (No, I've never been to an "I Feel Great" convention.) lol

    LOL @ HeartsWideOpen! It's called "Don'tEvenTellMeICan't"....try it!

    Really y'all, I am very negative about many things....I'm a great backseat driver when my dh is driving, worry my kiddos will get hurt at school, too scared to let my dd be a flyer in cheerleading, although I'm going to have to get over that b/c she wants to be a cheerleader in college, won't fly b/c I'm scared of planes, don't go over 5 miles over the speed limit...etc.

    Nursing is just the one thing I know I have to do, and will do. I have to have a way to support my children if anything happens to my dh. (See negative thinking there too...lol)

    Y'all just make sure that y'all are here to motivate me when I do get in and I start thinking, "WHAT IN THE HECK DID I GET MYSELF INTO?!?!?!?"

    If you think positively, you will not give up! If you think negatively, you may become discouraged and give up. I don't want to give up. I started this journey in 1991, and didn't finish.

    I am determined, it will happen when it is supposed to!

    Hi y'all.

    I feel a little guilty "reading over your shoulder(s)" on this thread, since I've been an RN for (Sheesh!) 35 years!!! (Can it be that long?)

    But I want to tell you how great I feel when I hear the intensity of your desire to become nurses. Even if you're forced to postpone your dream, don't quit. When you finally become a nurse, you will bring so much more to the table. Every experience that shapes your character... not just the narrow body of knowledge they teach you in nursing school... will come together to make you a stronger, wiser clinician.

    If you don't get in as soon as you would like, don't view the delay as a barrier, just a detour.

    I think the profession is going to fall into some good hands when we pass the scene.

    Thanks, 1Tulip. It's great to actually get some good vibes from experienced nurses. I hope I have the same attitude after years have past.



    MiaNJ: I am applying to the DallasCCD in Texas. I will be going full-time. In the meantime, I am working on the core classes toward my RN-BSN. That way, when I do get in and graduate, I'll be ready to take on the next major hurdle after I get 'somewhat' settled into a job.
