Hello :)

  1. I have been interspersing comments in the various forums for the past week or so, but wanted to formally say hello to everyone. I have been working on pre-reqs probably for the past 4 years (don't gasp; between personally issues, financial problems, and recently a new baby it has taken me a while to get things done ) and I'm finally ready to start my "real" nursing classes. My husband, though supportive of my dream to be a nurse, really is one of those "I don't see why you have to work" kind of guys. When I had my son last month, I got a mental kick start to go back to school, and when I stumbled over this BB I got excited to find a "support group." I hope to get to know you all as we all go through our classes. It's so nice to have people to lean on, celebrate achievements with, gripe with, cry on, etc.
    Ok I have rambled on long enough...thanks for bearing with my pratter.

    Hi Marie,

    Welcome Aboard!!

    Like you I'm working on pre-req.'s part time. I hope you find this BB as informative and supportive as I have. You will meet and interact with a lot of people from all types of backgrounds, levels of experience, etc. A lot of us on the board are not "traditional students" so you are among people who know where you are coming from.

    Take care and hope to hear more from you.

    I have only been posting for a short while - I too love the informative forums and the poeple and the 'squabbles' - its like an extended family
    However must say - beware - it becomes addictive
