Hello there! First entry!

  1. Hello! Where to begin? I am hoping to get some useful tips and advice on preparing for the T.E.A.S. I will be applying for the BSN program in January 2009,however,I know I need to get a head start on studying. I attend a community college fulltime,completing my nursing pre-req's. I am also a stay-at-home mom of four kids. Nursing is my dream, I refuse to quit now!!! Nothing is impossible, even at age 28!!

    Welcome, and best of luck to you.

    You speak as though 28 is old or something; quite humorous to those of on the backside of 40 :0

    I'll move your post to the Student forum where perhaps people who have taken that test can help you. Good luck!

    As someone who is pushing 40, I'd hope that anything is possible at 28.

    No, seriously, welcome and good luck in your studies!

    Hey, I understand. I'm 37, mother of 2 (oldest is almost 13...if she makes it....), husband of 14 years, and full time student. I am truly thankful I don't have to work while I go to school. God bless those who do. I too just finished my first semester. Even with a busy life I got all A's. My children can not say Mom, you don't know how hard it is to study.
