This topic has come up on the nursing blogs. Has participating on allnurses influenced your decision to further your education?

In my case, I can say yes, it has. For many years, I had a nagging desire to go back and a nice long list of reasons why I couldn't do it. After reading post after post from other people with more barriers in their way than I had, I decided to start looking for a way to go back. I did so last year and just finished last week.

After receiving my A.S. in Nursing, I later went on to receive my B. S. in Nursing. But this was several years before I joined Allnurses.

I stumbled across this site while research new careers. After visiting this site for general information and pros and cons of nursing, I decided to become a nurse.

Wish me luck, one year to go.

I always wanted to go back and just put it on the back burner. Allnurses encouraged and has been a tremendous support.

I to am starting back to school after 18 years....... I just took the math placement test yesterday and bombed it!!! It's been 27 yrs. since I have taken honors math in high school and it's no longer in my brain. I have to start over.

I am going for my BSN, I am looking at it taking me about 5 yrs. with me taking one class at a time.
