    Hi everyone, my name is Jaime. I will be starting my ADN nursing program this fall, just finished all of pre-reqs (finally, yeah!). I am mommy to 2 boys ages 6 and 2, and 1 little girl that is 1 yr old, and I am married to a wonderfully supportive husband. I can't wait to start, but on the flipside of that, I am extremely nervous!

    Hi I'm Shellie from Ohio. I'm a married mother of five who has finally decided to return to school. I'm going into my second quarter of an LPN program and I have my first actual nursing class tomorrow. I'm absolutely terrified and constantly wonder if I'm actually smart enough to handle all of this. I'm so glad I found a community of caring and compassionate individuals that will understand where I'm coming from. *Wish me luck*

    I don't THINK I responded to this, but if I did it would've been a while ago when I was pre-nursing...
    My name's Heidi, I'm 17 I'm from California and I just finished my first semester of nursing school (ADN) I want to go into the NICU, maybe PICU and I want to eventually be a nurse practitioner (probably NNP).

    I'm Jeni I am working on en. ed. classes this summer and fall and will start nursing classes in Jan. 2007. I'm a 42yr. old single mom to 3 boys 18 (college freshman), 16 and 13. I debated about nursing in high school and went education. I decided when my marraige of 19 years broke up I needed to make the switch. I'm working as a CNA on Med/Surg and loving it. As people have said it's exciting but kind of scary.

    I can't remember if I wrote it here yet. lol

    I'm Abby, I'm 21 [almost 22]. I was born and raised in Maine and I'm still living here while I'm in school. I started the process of trying to get into nursing in October after leaving another university where I was a psych major for 2 years. I had to take Human Biology because I didn't take chemistry in highschool [I was home schooled in HS] it was my only requirement. I took and passed all of my placement tests. I took the NET, passed first time and thankfully was accepted soon after that into the ADN program at the community college in town. The same school my mother got her nursing degree from 15 years ago. I'm also lucky because there are no waiting lists here. They say on average there are 300 applicants and they choose around 40. I was one of them! So, this summer I took algebra and another class to get them out of the way and I ended up with a 4.0 for the first time in the history of my education and now I'm ready to go!

    I start 2 months from today exactly. I'm so so so excited!

    My name is Diana I live in Florida. I will be 26 in August. Im married with three beautiful daughters ages 5, 3, and 10 months. I was excepted last year in July to start the nursing program in August of 2007, but i have some good news just got another letter asking me I wanted to start in January instead so im gonna take the seat. Im so excited i think i can do it. Pass that is. Im confident that i can do good atleast i am hoping that i can do good. Life is crazy with three kids and working its gonna be hard but im willing to take the challenge. I really dont have any other choice but to do good. Its one of those do or die deals ya know. When i get feeling really stressed about starting the nursing program i just try to think about the future and what the ending result will be in the long run. So im very excited 6 months comes fast so i have to start getting things together now. Ok well thanks for letting me share i love reading all the posts on here its very enlightening to come on here. Thanks again
