    Welcome one and all to both the nursing profession and to this board.

    Sammysue. I did the same as you are doing now and it was the best decision I ever made. It was hard, but worth the effort. I've always been able to suppost my boys no matter what my situation was.

    Hi Sammy! I'm also new here, and I feel we share similar life experiences. My Mom also passed away a few years ago and she was my inspiration to go to nursing school. I only wish she were here to see me graduate. However, I know she is looking down on me and smiling.
