I noticed Fatima started a thread for 25 - 35 year olds. I just thought I'd start another thread for us older students. If you're in your twenties, you're still a teenager in my eyes.
I'm taking the NA course right now and will be taking the state exam right on my birthday, July 3rd. I'm signed up to take the nursing pre reqs this fall and next spring along with other required non-nursing courses. I hope to actually enter the ASN program in the fall of 2004. I should graduate in 2006, when I'm just about to turn 45.
About myself, I've been married for nearly 21 years. During which time I've homeschooled our three daughters, ages 19, 17, and almost 15. The oldest is also going into nursing. The younger two are STILL being homeschooled. I'm luckier than a lot of returning students since Science and Algebra are very fresh in my mind.
My husband is a medical transcriptionist and is very good at what he does. He has total confidence in me to complete this program.
I really enjoy this site and am sooo happy to be back in school.
Oops! Almost forgot! We also have two fur babies. One is a cat we nursed from about 2 weeks old named Pooky. The other is my 2nd DDs gerbil named Justin.
