    Hi I am Misty, mother and step-mother to 4, 3 girls and a boy ages 3-7. I am getting married to my wonderful fiance a week before starting school in August. I am going to a 2 year program in Bakersfield CA and am nervous as heck. Any advice would be so helpful. Talk to you all soon.

    I'm Rachele, mom to an 8 yo boy and a 6 yo girl. My dh and I have been married nearly 9 years. When the kids were born we decided I'd stay home with them until they started school, then I'd start myself. I'll be starting the ADN program at a nearby CC in August. I registered for classes yesterday and ordered my uniforms. I have an older sister who has been an RN since 1993 so she's really helpful.

    Hi, I'll go by shlru0404. I am currently employed as Clinical Assist on a TCU of a rural hospital in southern Idaho. I do carry my NREMT-P and am transitioning into RN second year in Jan 2007. I am almost 40 with 2 kids and 6 step kids for total of 8(wow that sounds like a lot). My career related interests are critical care, oncology, and rehab nursing areas while personal interests are softball and horses. I am from California originally, but find Idaho a peaceful change. I hope to find people with similar interests and experiences to share my nursing joys and sorrows with. My hubby does concrete and he don't much care for my career stuff. I think it is cause he just don't understand it all. He finds way too many abbreviations for his liking. Blessings to all...

    I'm Kayla. I'm a new student. I'm a sophomore in college and i messed up my freshman year and now i'm paying. I dropped biology the first time. The second time i passed the lecture but got a D in the lab but i need a C. So now i have to retake it. I feel like a failure. And i was going to take chem but my advisor suggested me not to. So now i'm stuck with take Chem (+ lab), Bio lab, A and P (+ lab). I hope i make it in the nursing program so i can graduate in 2009 with a BSN!

    Hi, I'm Amy, 22, from Texas. I have one more year until I complete my BSN degree. I can't believe it has gone by so fast. For all of those starting, good luck and have a blast...that is, when you have a spare moment amidst all the study time.
