My name is Allie V. and I am 31, wife, mom of three great kids, and about to embark on one of the MOST exciting albeit challenging chapters of my life. I am expecting to start a nursing program in summer of 2005, and would really appreciate some feedback. Did you plan your nursing careers and map out goals of how to get to the stage that you are in now or did you just go with the flow? What would be one of the most important tips that you would give to an "older" student about to start a very intense program.... I will tell you, I am a bit dismayed; a friend of mind was talking with a LPN who was applying to a RN program-and she failed the entrance test by 1 point
....well, after I picked my mouth up off the floor I thought to myself how crazy am I, a non "nurse" going to do this. I really appreciate everyone's time and hope to hear from you!
