    Hello, I am Empress, not my real name, I prefer to remain private.

    I live with my SO in Texas and we have a beautiful 1 yr old daughter.

    I am an EMT-Paramedic with 2 years experience working for a 911 service for a big city, I am not currently working though. I really love doing it and would like to continue in EMS even after getting my RN.

    I am in my mid-20s.

    Lastly, I am a nursing student, currently on hiatus to care for my child, but will be finishing up my ADN (I have 2 semesters to go!) at a local community college starting in the fall.

    Hi all! My name is Gracey. I am 28 years old and applying to an LPN program in NYC. Not working now, no kids, no hubby, so I thought it was the best time to go into school. Application in the mail today so I am keeping my fingers crossed. Is there anyone else from the city here?

    Love reading all of your posts. They have educated me greatly on my career change.

    Okay, enough lurking around here ... I'm officially starting to post and I guess I better introduce myself first ....

    My name is Stasia ... I am 29 and live in Southern California with my husband and 10 year old son. I am a Human Resources Manager but have been accepted into the Nursing Program for my ADN starting in August of this year. I've never been more excited in my life!

    I tried hard to avoid Nursing and tried many other routes but I always found myself wanting to go back to school and get my RN. My dad, sister, grandma and great-grandma are all nurses ... so why fight it?

    Love this board and look forward to many years of talking with all of you!

    Hi! I just wanted to let everyone know that I just got my letter of acceptance for clinicals starting in the fall. I am so excited!! Of course, I just got handed a dosage calculations book and was told I would be tested on chapters 1, 3, 4, 7 and 9 the end of April. Guess I better get used to it.

    Hi everyone! I'm Maeyken, I'm 20, in my 2nd year of a 4 year BScN program in Ontario, and enjoying most of it! (somehow, essays are not on my list of favourite things to do!)

    I'm currently trying to figure out what area of nursing I want to pursue... there's so many options!!

    Hi all! Lilly here 45 year old mother of three, grandmother of 5. I'm in the ADN program and doing well so far. I'm sure I have much in common with a lot of you. Let's help one another through this. God bless our young men and women in the armed services. Let God giude them and keep them safe.
