Coming out of Lurkdom! New to the boards and a question

  1. Hello everyone! I've been lurking for a while and figured I'd take the plunge and start posting.

    I'm a 31 yr old, full time student. I'm also a mom to 3 boys (9,6 &2) and married!

    I'm finishing up my prereqs this semester (going full time) and hope to get into our nursing program at the University this spring semester.

    I'm wondering if anyone that has taken the NET test, had to retake a portion of it? I did fine on the critical thinking and math, but came 2% points away from the line on comprehension. I'm really bummed about that.

    Anyway, I'm glad I found the boards and hope to get to know you all much better.

    Hi there!

    I can't really help you out with the test. If I took it, I don't remember it.

    Just wanted to say hi to a fellow Ohioan! Welcome to the boards! I look forward to hearing bunches more from you!

    Welcome Stacey,

    I lurk more than I post as well. This is a great forum. I live in Ohio as well, about 2 hours SE of Toledo.

    Let us know how you're doing in school. I won't be finished with my pre-req's until May 2003. I'm hoping to be in the Nursing program by Fall 2003. I'm not one for wishing my life away, but I really feel like this is taking too long and can't wait for it to be over.

    Keep posting and by the way, what is the NET?
