    Hi I am 29 years old mother of one...recently graduated from an LPN program...awaiting NCLEX. I am also jumping right back in to go for the RN. I'm applying to about four schools. Two of which I really want to get into. I live in Brooklyn, NY anyone from BK or any of the five boroughs can send me a PM. Looking foward meeting new people who want to care for the world like myself. I think AllNurses is fantastic...I love being here.

    Hi all. I've been lurking for a while and thought it was time to register and introduce myself. 33, mother one 8 yo girl, wife to a pilot (that's going to make scheduling fun!). Starting an ADN program in August, with graduation in 2009. I'm hoping to go into LDR, and eventually become a nurse midwife, but that's all subject to change based on clinical and other experiences, I suppose.

    This has already been a great source, and I haven't even started classes yet. Looking forward to getting to know all of you.

    Hi everyone, my name is Ryan, I'm 28, married and from Minnesota. I start an RN program on the 28th of August at Minneapolis Community College, hopefully graduating in 2009. I have my BA from Gustavus Adolphus College in Political Science. I am currently working as a nursing assistant. This board seems very helpful and I look forward to joining forces with you all in the trenches in the next couple of years.
