I am graduating with a 4.0 (older students/parents, listen up!)


  • Specializes in LTC, Psych. Has 2 years experience.

I just had to share, I am so excited! I've worked so hard for this. It's been a personal goal and uphill battle.

There are so many posts from 30+ adults headed back to school, especially from those with kids, wondering if it can be done. I'd just like to share that I headed back at 32 and have 6 kids. It can be done, it is possible, you CAN do it.

Graduation is Thursday & I start my new job after the first of the year. But for tonight.......a well-earned :beer:

GOOD FOR YOU!!!! I recently wrote a post asking other moms (I have a 19 month-old and a 1 month-old) for advice on how they do it and the response was almost overwhelming! People like you inspire people like me to keep working hard! My husband works such long hours I feel like a single mom with the chores that go along with a husband lol! I thought that I might be crazy beginning a fast track RM program in Jan., but I'm using stories like yours as motivation that I CAN DO IT! NOW GET OFF THE COMPUTER AND CELEBRATE!!!
