Dec 18, '06Joined: Sep '06; Posts: 18; Likes: 1Welcome to all the students I can't remember if I did an intro or not, lol. So forgive me if it's a repeat.
I'm Nurseintraining77 (aka Naima). I'm a 29 yr old wife and mum. I'll be starting nursing as a 2nd degree student. My first bachelor is in psychology so I'm sure I'll be able to use many of those skills. I'll be attending Alverno College starting in Janurary so time is really winding down.
I'm sure I'll have plenty of questions/comments as school gets rolling. For now I'm just enjoying the free time I have, lol.

Dec 19, '06Joined: Dec '06; Posts: 234..nearly 35 and starting classes next month. I've been working in the non-profit/community services industry for about 7 years and I've decided to make a career change. I'm excited, yet nervous. I already have a BA so for the next two years I'll be working away on my associates.
Dec 19, '06Occupation: RN Specialty: 26 year(s) of experience in geriatric, hospice, med/surg ; From: US ; Joined: Aug '06; Posts: 601; Likes: 40I'm a 47 yr old. RN graduated in 1986. Have two grown children, two daughters. No grandkids, but four grandkitties (fully grown but will always be kitties in my eyes....I'm a grandmew, not a grandma!)
Have a SO who's shared my home for 13 yrs now. He's from England and his cute accent is the first thing that picqued my interest in him! THat and his gorgeous english complexion and blue eyes! DOn't we Westerners LOVE the accent of those Brits!?!
He's special but we're both divorced walking wounded hence will probably never get married. I have a nice ring, the whole nine yards, just afraid that little bit of paper that makes it all legal will "jinx" it all!
We had a German Shepherd Dog for ten years, raised her from a pup, she was our pride and joy and our "daughter" together....had to have her euthanized back in July...(sniff, sniff). We still miss her and I plan on replacing her post haste when $$ allows...
Got off topic. Sorry. Am currently working part time in a non-nursing capacity due to chronic health issues. Have worked LTC, home health care, hospital med/surg; dialysis, doc's offices, you name it, I've done it!
Locale: North Carolina!
Happy to be here. Allnurses has changed my life....for the BETTER!
Thanks, Brian, creator/grand master of allnurses forum.

I am a 30 year old married mother of 2 (daughter-7, son-4) whose husband is an esophageal cancer survivor. I finished all my BSN prerequisites last week(phew!) and today I received my acceptance letter from the Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing Emory University! I am so excited. It is the only school I applied to and I am so ready to get started.
I hope everyone has a great holiday and good luck in your future endeavors!

To new students, I discovered this community about 2 years ago and its been a wealth of resources and advice. So I decided to stop lurking and start contributing.
