    Hi lpn2005, Kim here. Just wanted to let you know that I know how you feel! My hubby is going TDY the week after I start school, UGH!!! Don't let anyone discourage you. Theres always people that have to be negative. You just go for it, do the best you can and show her what a great nurse you'll be! If you need to chat or vent you can email me. A military wife is a tuff enough without nursing school, I can only imagine what it will be like for the next year and a half! Keep your chin up and good luck!

    Hi everyone! I've been visiting this forum for a couple of months, but this is my first post. I'm 45, happily married for 29 years with three wonderful kids --- a 26 year old daughter, 22 year old son, and 21 year old daughter-in-law.

    I'm just starting a two-year ADN program next week. Orientation is tomorrow --- I'm really excited, but nervous too! I've been looking through the MANY textbooks and hope I haven't bitten off more than I can chew! Any pointers anyone would like to share would be gratefully received.

    Looking forward to hearing from you!

    Hey everybody! I'm Joe. I'm 29(30 in June ), still SINGLE, no kids . I'm a GPN (boards this spring) and 3 semesters to go. I love nursing. Should have done this years ago, but I spent my 20's in the Army and running my ex's tattoo shop. Welcome to all the other new members/students, and good luck!

    Hi all,
    I am 32 (well, will be this coming Friday) and taking pre-reqs right now. I am hoping to apply to nursing school at the end of May. I have two sons, ages 11 and 15, and got engaged over Christmas to a wonderful man who is supporting me all the way (finally!)
    I am very interested in psych, although right now I do clerical work (that's an understatement!) at a hospice and my boss is amazing. She has started inviting me to the interdisciplinary team meetings and encourges me to follow the cases and ask plenty of questions. I would work for her after graduation in a minute.
    Nice to meet you all!

    hi everyone! i am in a 4th/5 semester adn program. i will finally graduate in august 2004 (hopefully) love this board. it helps to know others are going through all this stress too, i don't think anyone can understand what it's like unless you have been through it yourself.
    good luck to all.
