    and where are you doing your training?
    don't give in, be strong

    Good luck to you all and I hope to see you back here!!

    Wow - there seems to be a lot of us!

    I'm 33, soon-to-be single mom with a toddler. It would be really nice to get support and encouragement, tips and tricks from other parents attending school.

    Might I suggest starting a Yahoo group or something similar as a place to give each other support? It would be very similar to this type of forum, except more private and personal because it would be a smaller group.

    If anyone would like to know how to start one, I can help you. If everyone seems interested, but no one wants to start it, I can offer to start one. Just post here that you would like something like that...

    Hi everyone. I am 39 and am finally working toward my dream of becoming a nurse. This is my first semester back at school, and I am working on my pre-reqs. I won't be able to apply for the nursing program until fall 2010 because I couldn't get an A&P course this semester, but I did manage to get it for the spring semester. I have three kids, 19, 10, and 2 and a husband who supports what I am doing, working full time so that I can avoid putting our 2 year old in expensive daycare and letting me go to school without me having to work!! :redpinkhe It's great to see that there are others in my situation; at times, it feels like there is no one else!! Good luck to everyone.
