New to Allnurses :)

  1. Hello to all! My name is Winona, I am 45 and new to I am in my first semester in nursing school, Springfield, MO. I am a member of the Student Nurses Association. I am happily married and the mother of eight, grandmother of three. Our family enjoys raising horses, dogs, cats and other critters. I am currently in the ASN program and will be transferring to BSN when I get licensed. I encourage anyone who thinks they're too old for school to just go back and do it anyway. If I can do it, anyone can!

    to allnurses. You will find many interesting stories and people here. I wish I would've found this site when I was in nursing school! It would've been a life saver. But I made it anyway. I found it when I was searching for likelihood of passing boards with 83 questions lol. Geez that seems like forever ago!
