Jul 7, '02Joined: Aug '01; Posts: 412Hello all--
My name is Susan, and I am 27. I'll be starting the last two years of a BSN program this August, at University of Texas at Arlington.
No husband, no kids. Unless you count my cat. Although right now I'm desperately trying to find a home for him.
Anyone in the Dallas area want a really wonderful cat?
Unfortunately, I can't take him with me to school. I'm going to be living in on campus housing and they don't allow pets. I'm trying to convince my dad to take him, but so far no luck.
We have orientation on the 12th and 13th, then we start on the 26th.
Welcome to all of the newbies, this is a great site for support.

My name is Fatima. I'm a 29 yr. old wife and mother to 3 children. I am also expecting my fourth and last child on January 9th... I will be starting my 1st semester in in the Fall at my community college. I am very excited!!!! I know it's going to be hard but I'm glad that I got accepted. I won't attend my 2nd semester in the Spring due to the fact that I will have the baby. I plan to return in the Fall of 2003 to take Micobiology or A&P 2 and then resume my 2nd semester nursing course in the Spring of 2004 (it's too bad Nursing 108 only comes around in the spring...lol. Other than that things are okay. We just moved into our new home last Saturday...and I finally got things in order...lol.
Jul 7, '02Joined: Jul '01; Posts: 398; Likes: 15Hi everyone! I am 32, married 9 years, and have three daughters, ages 8,5,and 2. I am finishing up my last 4 prereq classes at a CC, then going to transfer to a university to complete my RN. As from my earlier posts, I am terrifed of this! I absolutely LOVE going to school, but I worry about EVERYTHING, and will probably have a nervous breakdown before this is over. I would love to eventually love to work in maternity/labor & delivery. And I just want to thank everyone for being so nice here - since I analyze everything about this whole school thing, I feel like I ask alot of questions! But you guys always make me feel better!

Jul 7, '02Occupation: Labor and Delivery RN Specialty: LDRP ; Joined: May '02; Posts: 1,595; Likes: 201Hi! I am also a newbie around here.
I am 29, a mother of two and have just started a part time job as a unit secretary in an ICU/PCU unit. I am taking prereqs and classes for the ADN program and have been accepted into an LPN program as well, and I am still kinda wondering how I will end up doing this education thing. My goal is to get my ADN and go from there. I want to work in obstetrics and at some point teach childbirth education classes.
Anyway, I am excited about school! Glad to have found this board!
See ya around...
Jul 8, '02Joined: Dec '01; Posts: 29My name is Starr. I am 39 yr old, married with 4 kids and currently working 12hr shifts in LTC as a LPN. I am possibly starting the RN program this fall. I am so tired from taking prerequisites this year. I may decide to start in January instead.
Jul 8, '02Joined: Apr '02; Posts: 13Hello everyone!!! My name is Kat and I am in my third and final year of nursing. I'm 20 and started the course straight out of high school, which is the norm here in Melbourne, Australia. I hope to work in a+e when I graduate this November. I've just been reading up until now and I love the site so I thought I'd jump on in. Got a boyfriend and two pet dogs.
Jul 8, '02Occupation: Registered Nurse Specialty: 10 year(s) of experience ; From: US ; Joined: Aug '00; Posts: 896; Likes: 83That is a wonderful idea especially since quite a few people have recently joined. My name is Tonya, I am 22 years old. Single mother to Alicia Nicole who is 4 and a half years old. She is a very active little girl but very sweet. I am in a BSN program but I promise you I am not one who thinks I am better just because I will have my BSN this time next year. I believe ALL Nursing students and Nurses have the potential to be good nurses regardless of the initals or degree they earned. I am starting my senior year in 6 more weeks so I will graduate next year May 18th, 2003. I am so ready to be done. I should have graduated this year but I will do that next year. I also have my associate's degree in liberal arts but that got me no where expect just the satifaction that I was able to earn it before I started nursing school. I currently live with my parents and they are a wonderul support. I don't know if I would have been able to do nursing school without them. Right now my main interest is defintely Pediatrics. I am thinking of doing pediatrics in the inpatient setting for a few years then moving to the home health/community setting and going back to school for my Master's to become a nurse practitioner. I would love to also go and earn my Ph.D. and become a nursing instructor/researcher one day. I love to Research things and study things so researching will be something of the future for me.
To all those starting their first semester in a few weeks. I know it is scary but trust me if I can do it so can you. This board is a wonderful inspiration. motivation and support board as I am sure many of you have already seen and I have been on here for a while now.
Ok, that is enough about me already passing it on to someone else now who would like to introduce themselves.
