I am going to be 22 years old next month. I have been a nurse for 4 years now. 1 year in OB where we have epidurals, do our own C-sections and tubals and recover those patients after anethesia, 2 years ER, 1 and 1/2 year 2 12 hours days per week in a level one CCU. I have ACLS, PALS, and NRP. I am preparing to take my CCRN this summer. My GPA is 3.5 (nursing classes 3.8). I know you are wondering, how is she 22 and a nurse 4 years? I graduated high school (not GED) when I was 16, graduated nursing school when I was 18, the rest is history. I finish my BSN this December and I am taking O-chemistry this fall. I have completed all of while being the mother of 4 boys, two before I ever graduated from high school. Paying for school is not a concern. Does anyone out there with some experience in this think I will get in, what can I do about bettering mu chances?

Sorry to tell you but it is the truth. I do not neglect my kids. At one point in time when I was going through nursing school I did not see them as often as I wanted to but never neglected. As far as my husband is concerned, he is very supportive but I have not always had him around. We have been married for 4 years and my oldest child is 8, you do the math (if you can). I know there are simple minded people out their such as your self. I can not help it that when I became pregnant I decided to make sure I did something with my life and from the way you sound, you are the type of person that if placed in the same situation would drop out of school and end up on welfare. Sorry if I have more self respect than that!:angryfire
