    Hey girlie!!! I'm sitting here working on my care plan paper (due tomorrow, such an eternal procrastinator, lol) and I remembered you telling me about this site, so I browsed it to look for some care plan help which was GREAT help. I'm about done my paper, ready to be printed. (thank god!!!) This place is really such a WEALTH of information.

    Hi my name is Sandy, I am a 42yo single mom of one. When I divorced last yr it was a life changing say the least..LOL. I decided it was time to do what I have always wanted to an RN. I started my pre-reqs and am currently enrolled in a pre-nursing program. Fall 2006 I will begin my nursing courses. I will have all my sciences and gen ed studies completed, so I will be able to focus on just NURSING....I cant wait!!

    I wish I had done this sooner!! I enjoy school!

    Hi everyone,
    I am Rhoda from KY. I am 41 yrs old with one 17 yr. old son. I am in my first semester of a ADN program and love it. I wish I had done this years ago but it's never too late. I lucked upon this site and it has proven to be very very helpful. It is a relief to see other students have the same concerns and issue I have and the postings have answered several questions without my having to ask. I appreciate you all more than you could imagine. Good Luck to everyone :hatparty:

    I'm Ann and I'm almost done with my first term of nursing. 3 more to go. I love it! I did two years of pre reqs and now I really feel like I'm getting into the nursing and going to be great. I was a teacher before this and am so excited about the new career and retiring from this one. Oh yeah, I'm 34, old according to the kids lol. I'm so glad I found this site. I look forward to meeting and talking with all of you.

    I will officially be 50 the middle of next month (ugh!). I have spent the past 2 years taking prereqs and anything I else I could complete prior to being admitted to an ASN program for my RN.

    I finally completed my Bachelor's degree in '99 in Business, but quickly realized that sitting behind a desk M - F is NOT my thing! This means a lot of the miscellaneous-type of coursework is out of the way (math, English, etc.), but unfortunately, I had avoided the sciences like the plague!! Perhaps because of my interest in changing careers, I am finding that the science classes are not as overwhelming as I was afraid they would be!! You CAN teach an old dog new tricks!

    The youngest of my 3 children graduates from high school in May, so starting a program in the Fall of '06 should work out perfectly!

    Best wishes to all!

    Hello all! I am returning to after a semester with no job (and therefore, no down time in front of a computer - Ha!). I am finally starting nursing school at Fresno State (BSN program) in January 2006. I am looking forward to it, but not to buying the books, uniforms, stuff, etc. I am 31 and married to a very supportive husband who is a deputy sheriff/farrier. We live way on the country (school is 1 1/2 hours away) with our two kitties and two horses. I have an incredibly adorable and smart step-daughter who will be six soon. I hope to keep track of all my fellow students here and know I will find this site to be the best resource for nursing school there is.

    Thanks for the encouragement! Sometimes I get a little nervous about putting "all of my eggs in the nursing basket" at this age, but I think I will love it. The support and help of all the people on this site gives me hope that I will run into more happy nurses out there than I think.
