Jun 7, '03Joined: Apr '02; Posts: 2Hi everyone,
My name is Tina Rager. I live in North Carolina and I will begin in the ADN program this fall for the second time. You see I actually started last year in the ADN program but my daughter broke her jaw and had to have her jaw wired shut just one month after I started so I had to pull out to take care of her. So now I'm going back. Ive completed all of my prereqs and am ready to go!! I'm married and have three children, 19, 16 and 12.
Good luck to everyone!
