1. Hello everyone, I too have been "lurking" a while. I am a 33yo married mom of three (3,4 & 8) and am currently enrolled in an ADN program. I will be graduating in May 2003. I always knew this is what I wanted to do but I guess I just never got around to it. I don't think I was ready until now. It feels nice to see soo many people who are in the same boat as me (older,kids) and see they are doing it too! I look forward to getting to know everyone.

    Hi Lori,
    It's wonderful to meet you. My name is Fatima, I'm 29 and I have 3 children also (7 1/2, 6, and 15 mths.). I'm a SAHM by day, and I attend college at night. I am taking 2 pre-req's this semester so that I will be eligible for admission into the Fall 2002 program. . Hopefully I'll get in... . Hope to post to you soon.

    Thanks, good luck with the pre-reqs. I think the A&P was worse than the nursing classes so far!
