    I am an "almost 30" year old mom of 3. I am taking my pre reqs for the ADN program at a college about 30 miles away. I have a wonderful husband who has been very supportive, as well as grandparents and other family willing to help.
    I am most worried about juggling everything....church, school, children, etc.... My oldest daughter and I also breed and show angora rabbits. She has been great about taking on more responsibility and tells everyone how proud she is of mom for going back to school.

    I am 25 years old with a 18 month old daughter and wonderful husband. I start school in the fall for the first time since I graduated highschool 8yrs ago. I am a little nervous!!
    I have spent the past 6 years working my way up the tourism ladder in Alaska whe I relized that I was not doing what I wanted, only what I had always know.
    3 years ago I became and EMT with the local volunteer ambulance service and never turned back. I worked for a year at the local clinc as a MA. I love it and am looking forward to leaning more.
    I plan to post often as school gets under way!

    I'm 27... I started a 4 year nursing program 2 years ago, but then left in the first semester when I got pregnant and was having some complications.

    I've since opted to switch to the local community college's 2 year program. So for the summer, fall and spring I'm taking prereq's and applying for the nursing program there next fall.

    I have 1 child... Brucie, currently 10 months old. I commute to the school further away b/c my mom is on the way and I drop Brucie off with her.

    Hi, I will be 25 in Nov. I just finished my first year of pre req and I am starting my 1st year of my ADN program in Aug. I am a single mom to a 2 year old son. I work full time and go to college full time. It is hard work, but I am so glad that I am finally going through with it. I just wish I would have did this 5 years ago.

    Hi everybody!!!! I am a 28 yr old mom of 2, ages 6 and 2. I am just finishing up my 1st year of pre-reqs for my BSN. I am hoping to apply to nursing school summer of 2004. I am still working full time, school full time and trying to keep the kids fed and clean. I do have a great husband and parents who help out alot and that makes it not as hard.

    The hardest thing for me is when my daughter tells me she wishes I didn't have to go to school anymore. That breaks my heart. Overall I think she is proud that I am going back to school, but she is only 6 and still wants me to be there with her.

    This semester I am taking Philosophy, Am. Lit and Chemistry.

    I look forward to getting to know all of you!!!!

    I am 27 years old, married with 2 sons ages 2 1/2 and 4 1/2. I recently was accepted into nursing school which begins in Aug. '03 and I am very excited and very nervous. I have taken all the pre-reqs and have the next 2 years to focus on nursing classes only. My husband is very supportive of my decision to return to school and helps me with the kids, cooking, housework, etc. so I am able to study. I am looking forward to graduation already and I haven't even started nursing classes yet. I am sure I will be so busy with clinicals and studying, the May '05 will be here before I know it.

    34 yo male, just went back to school in the spring, ofcourse I didnt get any classes that counted being my first semester back, but Im optimistic about the whole thing, when my girlfriend went through the whole ordeal it took her about 5 years total from start to finish but shes glad she did, I hope it doesnt take that long for me... but if so... eh. I'm in CNA training now, its a dirty job but I figure... it is nursing, and I actually like it (odd) after all pt care is what its all about..... right? 3 more weeks and I get out of the training program then I can concentrate on my summer anatomy course I signed up for..UGH!
    Well thats my 2 bits Wishing all the new students and near grads the best of luck and keeping my fingers crossed for myself

    Hi All!
    I am a 32 yo mom of one 12 yo. I will be moving 50 mile from my current home this fall for nursing school. I am sad and happy at the same time. I will be leaving my daughter with her father while I am in school (because schools are better in our town), and am happy because I have worked really hard to get into nursing school. (was turned down by first school I applied at) I am very proud of myself and I think that all of my family is as well. Good luck to everyone, I know how hard it can be.
