    Hello. I am the mother of 3 girls, ages 16,5 and 4. All are in school now so I plan to give Nursing all my "spare" time and then some! I am looking forward to fulfilling my dream of being a Nurse. I will, hopefully, be starting in January. Pray for me!:angel2:

    Ooooh, Chermistry and I aren't the best of friends! I took Chemistry and was not doing well so I thought I would drop it and retake it only to find out that I could not take it while taking Nursing. I was dropped from the program after being accepted and now I have Chemistry under my belt and finished!!! I am looking forward to starting the Nursing program in January(provided they wil select me again. I took my test and passed and was selected for an interview.). I wish you luck!

    It's kinda hard to navigate around on these threads/posts?!?! Or is it just me overlooking something obvious? Like when you open a thread it defaults to the beginning not the last post.....????

    hi all

    my name is laurie... a 41 years-young mom of two little boys, ages 7 and 4. i've been a hosptial unit secretary for over 20 years, and i've finally decided it's time for me to get out from behind the desk and become a nurse!

    i live in se michigan, and will be starting the adn program at macomb college next month... i'm excited and scared all at the same time. i know that my years of experience at the hospital will help, though.

    for fun, besides spending time with my kids, i like to ride my motorcycle (it's my prozac, lol), read, be active politically (i'm a proud liberal), blog, and dabble in photography. i should add excercise to that list, because god knows i need it, but i hate it... lol

    anyway... nice to meet y'all :wink2:

    I'm a 31 yr old mother of 5 young children ages 9,8,5,4, & 2. 3 girls and 2 boys in that order. I've been married for 11 yrs to a very supportive DH however I reserve the right to vent about him often. I'm from Iowa and and a Nursing II student in the ADN-RN program at our local college.

    I've handled the stress of having a family and struggling through nursing school great so far. This semester though I think I'm going to need a little more help (medication wise). I'm not afraid to say this as I know that I have quite a load on me right now and it's going to get worse before it gets better. I'm also taking my last supporting class A&P II this semester so next semester I can focus solely on my Nursing classes.

    I credit my finally figuring out that I want to be a nurse when I grow up to my kids. If I had not had them, I still would not have realized how much I care for the well being of others. I've always been a caring person, but becoming a mother has changed me in a way that is unexplainable - definitely a positive change. Of course if I had had my way, I'd be rich and a stay at home mom so I'd never have to leave my babes to go to school however the experiences that I've had thus far and my determination to succeed has been a wonderful role model for my kids.

    At any rate, that is my introduction of myself and I look forward to continuing in the nursing profession. Also VERY VERY happy I found this site to find other struggling students like me!
