    Hello everyone,

    I am finished with my pre-req's for nursing school and finishing up some of the general classes to get them out of the way. I plan on applying for the Fall nursing class. I am very hopeful I will be accepted. I am a mother of two and a wife. I am 40 years old and have been going to college for two years now. I live in Michigan. I am having some anxiety about how to fit a job in this schedule. I am not working now, but I really need to work part time. How do any of you working nursing students do it?? I know most if not all nursing classes and clinicals are during the day at my school. I have my app in at all the local hospitals for nurse assistant and I do have a Nurse Tech position lined up for December, after my first clinicals are complete. That is a long way off though. Well nice joining this site and I will be checking in often.

    Hi all!

    I am in the first semester of my ADN program. It took me two years to take 'everything else' while I was on the waiting list, and I am down to nursing classes and micro, which I am taking over the summer. I am 34, married with two boys ages 12 and 2. Nursing is a second career for me. I used to be a property manager.

    Nice to meet everyone.

    I'm in my first year of a two-year BSN program and some of the demands seem inhuman.

    Hi, I'm J and I am 24 years old and just got accepted to the RN program here in NC. I am enjoying reading through the different posts. I especially liked the post about what things students should have. Do PDA's really come in handy? Ok, off topic there. The program starts in the fall and I am extremely excited about it!

    Hello everyone! Just wanted to stop by and introduce myself. My name is Michelle and live in Los Angeles (CA). I am 45 yo, married 27 yrs with 4 kids (adults now).....3 of them in college. I have always wanted to be a nurse and became a CNA in high school. While training to work as a medical assistant prior to nursing school, I became involved in pharmacy and became a technician. Most recently worked as a tech in a Nuclear Pharmacy and now am about to start a 13-mo LVN program. Since I have to pay for it myself I found a program that cost only $1900 and the state is gonna pay for my supplies (books, uniforms, shoes, etc.)

    I do have a 10 wk pre-nursing course to take and I know my previous medical background will make my chances of getting into the program a cinch. I can't tell you how excited I am to finally do this, now that my kids are out of high school! :roll

    Hi Everyone,
    I am 38 years old, a mother of two. My daughter is 19 and my son is 16 (heaven help us and stay off the side walks :chuckle). My daughter is pregnant with our first grandchild and we are very excited.

    I have been an LPN for 14 years. The first 12 spent working on a medical surgical floor and for the past two years I have been working in womens health. I have enjoyed it so much that I have finally chosen to return to school to get an ADN degree.
    Currently I am in the middle of med-surge II and after maternal child in the fall I will graduate (yippe last year!).

    Good Luck everyone!

    Hello everyone! I am getting ready in the next few months to start the LPN program. I am going to be 50 when I start. My daughter is married and away from home so this is the first chance I've had to do something for me! You all are so there anyone out there my age?

    Hi, I'm Jessica. Just found out 2 days ago that I have been accepted to the BSN program at University of Louisiana at Lafayette. I am 29 but have a ton of college under my belt so hopefully it won't take all 4 years to graduate.
