Hello Everybody!

  1. Hi all! I've been a lurker here for about 7 months now, and decided it was time to introduce myself.

    I am currently finishing up pre-req's, now taking A&P II. I am married, stay at home mom, part time student, and have a nine year old son. The first time I was in college (15 years ago) I went for elementary education. Although I've wanted to be a nurse since I was very young, my mom talked me out of it. Yup, you guessed it, she's a nurse! :chuckle

    It's so nice to know I can come here for advice or support. You all seem like a great bunch of people, and it's nice to know there are people in the same boat as I.

    Nice to meet you all!

    Welcome Mimi Wheeze, glad that you introduced yourself! I, too, have decided to pursue nursing at a later age (there are many of us here as you may have gathered). I'm hoping to get into the next class in fall, finishing prereqs now and in the summer.

    Enjoy, it is a great BB.

    Hi Mimi!
    Welcome. I too am doing the college thing after graduating from high school 20 years ago (hard to believe!) I'm a stay-at-home mom of 3 (13 girl, 11 boy, 7 boy) although between college, the kids school, soccer, swim team, soccer, instrument lessons, soccer, . . . well you get the idea.

    I, too, am finishing my pre reqs and will begin the actual nursing program in the fall.

    Enjoy school - it's great the second time around!

    Welcome Mimi! There are a lot of "older" students here. In fact, I'd venture to say there are more nontraditional students here than not. Good luck to you!
