    I am an LPN and just finished my last RN semester. So I will probably be able to take boards at the end of January beginning of February. I found out the beginning of this semester I am expecting #3 at the ripe old age of 39. I currently have 2 Five year olds. I am not working because I wanted to concentrate on making decent grades. Good luck to everyone.

    Forgot to add that I have been an LPN for 16 years.

    I have been an LPN since 1990 and am the mom of 2 boys ages 10 and 13, a stepmom to a 15 year old and am owned by two dogs and 2 cats. I am studying for my CPNE now. I have taken FOREVER to get this far due to life circumstances but here I am. I am nervous about this clinical exam I believe mostly because of the cost riding on it and my GN hinges on it too!

    Hi I am Sherry. I am an LPN and I work full-time doing stress tests for a cardiology office. I have been signed up with RUE for over a year and still have not taken my first exam. I cannot seem to get motivated to do this. I know it is something I need to do and I want to do but maybe it was a mistake trying to do it on my own. I am beginning to think I should have just gone back to school. But now I have all this money into RUE. I don't know what to do. Any advice?

    Hello. My name is Emmy. I am a 42 year old single mom of a 16 year old rock guitar player. I have had a wonderful time this semester studying to the smooth sounds of Def Leppard, Jimi Hendrix and Judas Priest. I have finals for the next four days so my darling child is staying at his best friend and bandmates house. God bless that child's mom. I have one semester to go and then................................I CAN'T WAIT TO START WORKING.
    Not going to complain too much about the kid, though. He made almost $600 playing the guitar last weekend. If he keeps this up, I may not have to work as hard into my retirement!!!

    I'm a 44 year old LPN who has just started the long haul for RN status. I have to take one class online through a ND school and then can take most of the rest through my local tech school online. When I get off the waiting list I will take the rest (clinical) at the local tech school. I've been an LPN for just over 8 years and I love it. However I finally decided to go for the better pay and more responsibility. I will miss the one on one with the patient though so as soon as possible I will be getting into a unit at our little hospital. Either ER of OB.
