    I am 24, will be 25 in May. I am definatly in the minority in my class. I attend a community college, where I am in the LPN program. There are only two students younger than me, one is 20 and one is 22! Yikes! Everyone else is 25 up to 56 years old. Thats OK though. I work with the elderly, I work for a private home health care agency, and work anywhere from 40-60 hours a week. No kids, but I do have 2 beautiful neices and one devilishly handsome nephew! [Thus my name!] Not married either. I'm looking for a man who will suppport my decisions and not try to hold me back because of his own insecurities! [Just ended a bad relationship.]
    Good Luck to all you students out there!

    Hello All

    I am 6 credits away from receiving my BA in Gerontology. Once I earn my BSN I plan on attending graduate school to earn a Masters (either MSN or MPH) and eventually a Ph.D in Public Health (with an emphasis on Disease Research or Epidemiology)

    Hi everyone.
    I'm Shana... I am 23 y/o. I am in an ADN program in MA. I start my first clinical nursing class in the fall. This will be my second associates degree, in 2000 I received an AA in general studies while I was taking all the prereqs for the nursing program. I am so excited to start to learn actual nursing *stuff. I am fairly new here and it's nice to see there are other people in the same boat

    Hey everyone...I'm new to the board, just registered! I'm 19 and just completing my freshman year in a BSN program. Just thought I'd introduce myself. I'd love to talk to other nursing students my age in different schools to share experiences. Hope everyone is well!

    Hi everyone. My name is Kristy and i am unfamiliar with this sort of thing so bare with me.

    I am currently in my second year - bachelor of nursing, at La Trobe uni in Bendigo - Victoria. I am 21 and still living at home with the olds, and my boyfriend.

    The reason i came to this site?? I am looking for some information for a law and ethics assignment i have to do. I have chosen a topic along the lines of medications, the process of administering them.

    Anyone think they could help me with some useful information or websites to visit??? It would be greatly appreciated.

    Hey guys. I'm at the top end of the specified age range here - 25, will be 26 in October. I was just accepted to an ADN program, and will finish all my prereqs this summer and begin classes with labs and clinicals in the fall.

    I am two semesters short of a BS in forensic science. I may end up finishing that degree later, am not really sure yet. I have no children, just a spoiled brat of a cat. I am also engaged and plan on being married after graduation in May of 2004.

    Wow, that was just a mish-mash of random stuff about me. Let's see, what else...?

    A friend of mine graduated from a BSN program last year. We worked as pharmacy technicians together, and I helped her study for the NCLEX. During our study sessions, she pointed out that I seemed to have a knack for the material, and I've been pondering the possibility since.

    Health care is a field that has always interested me, and it seems like a much better way to help than by analyzing blood samples and carpet fibers. (Which, no matter what The Learning Channel says, is NOT glamorous. LOL) A couple of months ago, I decided to go for it.

    And I have rambled long enough. LOL
