    Hey everyone!
    Im 20yrs old living in Sunny SoCal that will start a BSN program in the Fall. I am very excited to start the nursing process so I can offically call myself a "nursing student"!! My ambition to be a nurse did not begin when I was a little girl (like most people) but only two years ago when I realized the PreDental was not the major for me (I dont know how people could look at teeth for the rest of their lives...YUCK!!).
    Anyways, I absolutely llllooooovvvvveeeee this website and reading everyones comments excites/scares me to start nursing school, but I know every minute as a "nursing student" will be worth it!!

    Thanks everyone and good luck to everybody!!!

    Hi!! I'm Melanie, 29 year old full time stepmom to two, a 4 year old girl and 7 year old boy. I just entered into the ADN program at my local community college after being on the alternate list all summer long (talk about stress!!!). If all goes well, I should be graduating in May of 2005. It took me a long time to get here and although I'm a bit overwhelmed, I refuse to fail at this. I have always wanted to work in a career that enabled me to help others and after finding out that teaching was not for me, decided on nursing. I'm looking forward to the next 18 months with both excitement and trepidation!!

    Hello, all!

    I'm Melissa, a 34 year old full time staff nurse on med/surg, part time RN-BSN student, mother of a 12 year old daughter who has her plate as full as mine, own 3 cats and a dog and feel most of the time that I am losing my mind.

    I entered this forum as part of a class assignment, but think I will really enjoy the information and friendship it supplies.
