Don't give up on your dreams. "If you can dream it begin it" Goethe Although you have already began, there is always a way to finish. Before you know it you will be an RN and you and your kids will be very proud of your accomplishment. Stay strong. Keep posting.

I have my B.Ed. degree from 20 years ago (ugh LOL) and am now working towards a BN. Sounds like you're on the right track! Have fun when you start class next (next) week!!! Hope to talk to you again soon.Kayel,
Nice to meet you "fellow October person". I am going through a ADN program and hope to transfer to Washington State Univ. to complete the BSN. Well see, after I start working I don't know if I will feel like continuing on. Are you in school still or are you a real "RN" now?

Are you working during the days? That's awesome! I have psych in common with you, although I don't remember all that much of it .. I minored in psych (strangely enough with a B.Ed., long story LOL). Take care!Wow, this post goes back a long time!
I'm Amy. I am 27, got married Oct. 2004, and we are waiting to have kids til i'm done with school. I just started an accelerated associate degree rn program. It's for people who already have a bachelors in something else, mine is psych. We go to school on tues and thurs nights and have clinicals on the weekend. I'm done in May and i cant wait. I am really nervous about school.
I found this website and thought it would be helpful and fun!

Sound like a great program. How long is it? Where is it? Sorry about the twenty questions, but I that is new to me. Also, congrats on your marriage :hatparty:
I go to Harcum College in Bryn Mawr, PA, just outside Philadelphia. It's a small junior college. It takes 1 year to get your RN (associate degree), May 2005 to May 2006. The first class just graduated this past May. We have school on Tues and Thurs from 5pm to 10pm, and clinicals on sat and sun from 7am to 3pm. You have to already have a bachelors, which counts for the electives and sciences. So we just have to take the nursing classes. It's tough and i am very nervous, but i think i can do it. It's so exciting to know that i have less than 1 year left until i'm a real nurse

Joined: Jan '02; Posts: 657; Likes: 42hey i haven't been around for a very very long time. i was wondering if any of the older "waiters" (you know waiting around for their letters! ) anyway i just got some good news the other day when i updated my rn app. for the spring semester. she said i almost got in this fall, but that it "looks real good" for the spring!! i am so used to them giving me the "sorry, but you'll have to wait some more...!" so at the very least i was told that i would be an alternate, which almost always get added.
so i am tickled and thought i'd share it here, since i have always gotten so much support here.
