    30 y/o with a 10 y/o daughter and one on the way (got my acceptance letter and a positive pregnancey test ON THE SAME DAY) I ain't giving up:angryfire !!! I will have 4 days to rest after delivery and then back to school. Thank GOD for LABOR DAY, literally in my case. Spent lots of time at a 4yr school on the "waiting/let me take more of your money list" and finally decided to switch to an ADN program to get on with it. I start on MONDAY! I wish EVERYONE GOOD LUCK and I can't wait to pick everyone's brain.
    wow ,you got some determination, good luck. I was a nurse in GErmany, 15 years ago. When i came over here, they didn't accept my degree, I got pregnant and put it off to pursue a degree here. NOw i am finally back in School , have to start over again , of course. But i am not giving up now ,lol.

    Hi guys and gals! I'm Ryann, 28 yrs. old, single. I study nursing here in the Philippines and just started taking this course last year. I will be in my 3rd year this school year. I graduated my first course as an Industrial Engineer.

    I noticed that almost all members here are from the US. I still haven't seen any member from my country yet. Still, it's very nice to be a new member here. I'm very excited to be a registered nurse soon!

Not married but have a boyfriend of 2 years so i kinda feel like i am, not kids either unless my dog counts. Hope to be talking with alot of you soon!!!

    Hey everyone -- I'm 27 yr old and I live near Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas. I'm taking my pre-reqs right now and hope to start a nursing program in the Spring. This is a career change for me, and I am really looking forward to it. The programs are all really competitive around here, so I am trying to make all A's to help my chances of getting in. It's stressful, but I think it will be worth it!!
