    i'm nancy, 50, single and in the middle of my first semester of bsn. next semester i have figured a week that will total between 65 - 70 hours, with classes 15 hours, 16 hours clinical and about 34 hours of study which is quite impossible. we will be taking two clinical classes - childbearing family and psych nursing, each 4 credits and pathophys 3 cred, and pharmacology 3 cred. i'm on the verge of screaming. i know i'll love being a nurse if school doesn't kill me.
    how do people do this?

    i am stephany, 42, mother of 3 children, a son 22, a daughter 15, and a son 13. i am an lpn of nearly 11 years, and i am in my first semester of a five semester rn program.

    Hello everyone!! My name is Teresa. I am 38/Married/2 children 15 and 8. I started LPN School in September. If all goes well I will graduate September 8, 2006. I work as a CNA in a nursing home. We just did our first clinical Friday. It wasn't bad at all since I work in this facility. We start at the hospital in December. I can't wait. I hope I'm putting this message in the right place.

Looking forward to getting insight from all of you
    Hello everyone,
    I am so excited to have found this website. I am a 32 year old mother of two very active boys ages 9 and 5, and a wife of 10.5 years to a very active and wonderful man. I will start my first semester of 7 of the ADN program on Jan 30, 2006. I can't wait, this journey feels like it has taken me a lifetime, but I have loved every step of it. I hope that I am not being premature about joining this website but I am so interested about hearing from students who are going through the same experiences that I am and those who have already traveled these roads and can give us some detailed insights into the "World of the Nursing Student" Good Luck everyone.

    hi everyone! i think this introduction thing is a great idea b/c i have to admit i'm a little overwhelmed about just jumping into a forum w/o exactly knowing how it works. it's so nice to read about other people who are experiencing similar things right now on our road to becoming nurses. i am a 24 year old wife of two years, no kids yet (we're planning to get me through school first b/c of time and financials), and i am working on pre-reqs for a second degree bsn program. i hope to specialize in neonatal and one day get my msn as a neonatal np.
    i have a b.a. in psychology and sociology and had planned to be a social worker, but discovered my skin was not tough enough. i realize there will be a lot of pain and suffering involved with nursing also, but i feel like it will be balanced with the joy of knowing that i'm helping to save lives every day. i feel like i can't wait to get out of school so i can actually begin working, but then i think about ALL the things that i do not know yet and i am glad i still have two years to learn them!

    well, i just wanted to say hi and i am really looking forward to getting to know each of you better as we continue our classes. hope you all have a great day! it's going to be 84 here today, isn't this supposed to be november?!?!

    My name is Heather and I am a fourth semester (out of five) nursing student. I am 29 years old and married without children. I am due to graduate in May '06. We are taking our adult nursing portion right now. I recently experienced the great excitement of registering for my last semester and for graduation. I am so ready to be done. I love school, but I'll love the real world of nursing even more. I have been a tech for about five years so the transition couldn't come soon enough. I am pretty sure that ICU is going to be my direction after graduating.

    I am thankful for this forum and for all of the great advice that I have obtained from it. Congratulations to all newly admitted nursing students and to all of you who are December graduates! Best of luck to you!

    Hey everyone. I'm 18 live in Scotland. Single no kids. Live with my parents so no real worries or responsibilities. Am doing a 4 year nursing degree. Each year its 18 weeks in class and 18 weeks on placement and the rest on holiday. Just finished my first year. Have done three community placements, 2 with a health visitor and one with district nurses. At present just started my first hospital placement in geriatric rehab ward. I'm very scared but enjoying the experience regardless.
