hi, I am new to the site. I am a second semester nursing student completing my RN. I'm a nontraditional student (35) with a husband and 5 children. School is challenging, but I find that being older does have some advantages. I can certainly appreciate it more now than I did when I first started at 21. :spin: I wish anyone the best of luck going through this. It is probably the most emotionally and mentally demanding thing you will ever do(even worse than childbirth!) :roll I hope to be chatting with some of you soon.
