Hello to everyone!!
I have never posted on this wonderful site and I have no idea why. For the last TWO years, I have quietly and oftentimes enviously read each and every inspiring story and right now, I feel like I want to personally hug Lunah, seusquatch and many others. I Did not start taking my classes until November 08 and have taken 8 exams in 5 months!!! My last exam was ECE A&P, which I thought I would fail and made an A. I only gave myself two weeks to study. Thanks to A&P Made Incredibly Easy, Studygroup 101 and of course, EC practice exams. I hope that anyone else who reads this and is struggling with the idea that all of this seems so distant and unattainable, it isn't. I received my letter in the mail today stating "CPNE ELIGIBLE." WOW. I'm 42, spent most of my adult life a single mom, surgical tech, then an LPN and all along working with people that are "23" BSN grads and at the LTAC where I work, I'd have to wait for THEM to come and push drugs for me, or hang blood, etc. That too, inspired me to move forward. I know I have alot to prepare for, but reading notes from Lunah, etc., gives me hope. Thanks again to all of you.
