    I say it's all a money thing. The college wants money from the courses you "have" to take...you go girl! Fight it!

    ok I'm married and I have a daughter. I also work full time and I have studied full time. I was taking business and computer oriented courses so it really isn't anything compared to science courses and the nursing courses that I'll have in the near future. Because of this I will be quitting my day job in January. We are sharing an apartment with a friend (to save money). My husband will be the bread winner for 2 years (plus I'll have a part time as a proctor to bring in a little extra). To me the sacrifice will pay off in the end and that is what I have my eyes set on. It will all be worth it as I no longer will be stuck in a position for the rest of my life doing the same repetitive boring work I do every day. Oh and at least as a nurse I don't have to sit all day and develop a flat bu*t....ok you can tell I'm a secretary and I don't like my boss

    I admire you...I'm 22 like you and I have a daughter (3 years old) and it's hard at times. I'm glad that you feel better. I know you'll make it and you are graduating soon you've come such a long way... YOU GO GIRL!

    My husband supports me with whatever he can...right now he's probably going to Job corps as he needs training too so it'll just be my income and 2 of us in school. It's been just me in school these past years now it's his turn to get in it too, although I'm still not done and I'm not stopping...not until I get my BSN. In the end it'll be a sacrifice well worth for the 3 of us. So you can say support here goes both ways.

    I'm a mom too and I'll be working while in my nursing studies. I just figured out that I'll be done by the end of Fall 2006! YIKES! (I start this spring with pre-req courses)

    I'll be registering for Anatomy and physiology I along with another course to finish off my other degree (for which I just need 2 more classes to graduate). I wish I could register for more.

    I'm still going to stay with my decision to become a nurse. Although I've heard horrible things being said here about nursing. I will also follow on the advice to finish my degree, but I will do so at a slower pace(so I'll be done at the end or middle of summer). It'll make me proud to graduate with honors as I have a 4.0 GPA. I'm glad that even though I choose to be a nurse these past 3 years have not been a waste as it will help me in my nursing career.

    Good luck to you too 2banurse!

    defib queen here I come!!!

    Hi,

    When I become a nurse I want to work in L & D. Is it hard to get a job in this area?

    I'm 2 classes away actually 5 credits away from getting an associate's in office system technology (fancy word for a secretary ha! :chuckle ) Anyway I decided that being a secretary is NOT for me. I hate being still all day in one desk. I feel like I'm missing the action somewhere. I also feel like I need more responsibility. This job is just too boring (psstt! I should be doing work instead of online) repetitious work I do not like. I have been thinking about nursing for a while....a long while...at first I didn't think about it seriously because of the thought of needles, but now I love watching ER and all these medical programs that I thought hey! this doesn't gross me out like I thought! I guess I didn't realize back then that what grossed out other people did not necesarily mean that it would gross me out and that I wouldn't be able to handle. Ever since I had my daughter I have been fascinated with the whole experience of having a baby. I would admire the nurses that worked in the ob unit and I wished I had someone to show me how to breastfeed. Even though I do not work as an ob nurse I can tell you that I already love it. Geez...After 3 years in college, I can finally say that "I now know what I want to be when I grow up!" lol :chuckle

    I start my pre-req courses this spring...I'm excited!

    I'm a mom, a wife and I have to work full time. Unfortunately my job is not flexible in their hours. I work for the state and they are open business days/hours only. I do have off every weekend. See in order for me to get into the nursing program I still have to take my general education courses before they accept me for their clinicals and sociology is one of them(if I want to transfer to a 4 year afterwards). I just wish I could do this in the 2 years that they say. After seeing the "I hate A&P" thread I think I'm better off taking it slowly I was just hoping that would be a realistic goal(to take 3 classes), but now realizing how though the classes are from hearing others I think it may not be wise. I may just do some classes in the summer.

    Darn it! I wish I could quit my job and just study. If my husband was not going to job corps I would do that and then he can work. Oh well...I'll just go with the flow.

    BTW I like this board. You all seem nice people here.

    Hi,

    I was just wondering what your advice would be. This spring will be my first semester starting my ADN in nursing. I work full time and I plan to take chemistry, intro to sociology and anatomy & physiology. Do you think this course load is too much with the science courses? I have worked full time and taken 12 credits a semester before this but I know science courses are different in that they are more difficult/challenging. What do you think?
