    Hi Cindy, Leandra, and K9'sMom! I'm Jennifer, a 43 yr old mom of 6 in a diploma RN program. I'm getting ready to begin my critical care rotation and I'm nervous and excited! I graduate in June. My children are 4, 7, 13, 16, 20, and 21, so it's not as bad as it sounds <G>. School's been tough but I love every minute. Clinicals are challenging, can be frustrating and overwhelming some days, but are always rewarding and I learn something new each and every time I go onto the floor. Glad to meet all of you and best of luck!

    Hello everyone,

    I am waiting to be accepted in the Spring '07 Nursing Program. I am 35 years old and a married mother of 3. A 5 year old, 3 year old, and 2 month old. I am praying that I get in. I've recieved the letter from the school informing me that I have to come in to take the NET test. I am nervous and excited but I don't know if my marriage can stand this weather. If anyone has any advice please send it my way.

    I'm Tiffany, 25, and I begin a LPN program in Jan. '07 & plan to bridge over to a ADN or BSN program. I eventually want my MSN. Ive been married for 6 years and we have a 6 & 3 y/o little girls. I work at a physical rehab on the weekends & hope to continue my employment there while I am in school. I have no idea what area of nursing I want to do but I do know that I would enjoy a flexable schedule (lol..ya right!).

    Good luck to everyone!

    Hello, I'm April, 26 years old. Finishin up PN program. I take the boards in December if all goes well. I havent decided on what to do next, MS Healthcare Administration or RN first. I'm going to see if I can do RN part-time (one class a semester) and full time MS. By my calculations I will have both in 6 years. lol...I know sounds crazy but a try is all I can do. I'll try it for one semester to see how things go. I have no children, not married (not yet), and that's pretty much it. And that's me in a nutshell.

    Hello! I am a mom of 3...age 3, 9 and 10 and in my third year of an RN BSN nursing program. It can be difficult at times being away from the family to study for the next exam or write the next it's nice to hear there are other mom's out there persevering. Way to go!

    Good luck everyone!

    Yes, it is great to see so many of us "moms" going into nursing! Good luck to all of you, young, old, mom's, guys, too!

    I got offered a position on a med-surg floor that I LOVED when I did clinical there. I really didn't think I wanted to start in med surg, but when I went to interview yesterday I remembered how much I enjoyed the staff there last summer. The manager was actually pleased I was interviewing early (I don't grad. until June) and said she'd love to have me and would hold a position for me for when I graduate in June '07. I'm so excited I actually feel like studying again, LOL!
