    Hi Everyone

    I am new to these boards and wanted to introduce myself.

    I am 31 years old and after many years of procrastination ie working in the wrong field just because the money was great, i am finally pursuing my dream of nursing school. I am starting my pre reqs and will be taking soc, psych, and pre algebra this fall. I work full time and will continue to do so until my pre reqs are finished. I am so excited to finally be on the right path and love reading all the information this board has to offer.

    Hi everyone! My name is Gen. I'm 21 years old and starting my ADN this fall at Lansing Community College in Michigan. I've finished all of my pre-reqs, co-reqs etc, so now i'm taking subjects of interest to keep me at full time status while I'm in the program. This fall i'm taking Fundamentals of Nursing and Child Psychology. Starting in the spring i'll be taking classes that will transfer for a BSN, along with my nursing classes. Eep!

    Hi Everyone!

    I am 37 and just started my pre-reqs in order to get into the nursing program. I am thinking of going for my LPN now and maybe later bridge over into the RN program. Looking forward to the possibility of being a nurse one day.

    Hi, I'm 32 y/o w/f, married with 2 daughters (12&14) and 2 stepsons (4&8). I'm testing with Excelsior for RN. So far so good..... This was a great idea to introduce everybody. In the process of buying a new home, studying for school, and holding down a full-time position at the local hospital and working prn with a local agency. I stay pretty busy these days but still seem to find time to visit the board. It's great to meet you all and look forward to future posts. Congrats to everyone's accomplishments and I wish you all the best of luck. God Bless!!

    Well hello, my name is Austone, and I am a 22 year old student nurse in colorado, I am going into my second semester and have changed dramatically as a person. Being a male in this profession is difficult, but I am learning things about care and myself that I thought never possible!!

    Hi Austone, I just wanted to direct this reply to you. It is great to see more male nurses in the profession. It is difficult for everyone and I think that the challenge we go through can only make us different people from before. All for the good, ofcourse. Welcome and hang in there. Good luck!!
