    Somebody HELP ME..Please!!!!!!!!

    Hi! Im sure youre smart enough!It could be done with kids.I personally had four kids under the age of ten when I got my LPN.I think you should try that route.since it is one year full time. And that was very intense.You will need a lot of familial support,to help with your kids.My husband was awsome!If you have your LPN you could work,flexible and still makegood money,and if then you want to go back for RN,you could try a bridge program.I say go for it! you sound like you need a little self confidence.You could always find astudy group in nursing school to help with math and science.Good luck

    Should I go LVN or RN route?

    It all depends on what you want.I wanted to be an LPN.I had four young kids and a husband when I went to school.It pays well and i love my job.You could always go back for your RN while working as an LPN making good money.Rns of coarse make more money and have more responsibilities.I personally am content with being an LPN at this time.

  10. Last night on 20/20 they were speaking about transgendered children.The one child was born a boy and kept insisting that he was a girl.The family is raising him as a girl.What are your thoughts on this?Do you think there is some chemical imbalance?It was very interesting.

    Feeling numb............

    Im so sorry you had that experience.I know I work with abused children sometimes the sadness overwhelms me.I usually do cry at a later time like when Im at home.Maybe itll effect you that way.I dont believe you have a tough shield.or have become hardened. God bless.Everyone has different coping mechanisms.

    Wal-Mart to open 400 in-store clinics

    I think its a great idea.We dont have anything like this or the CVS minute clinics here.But they are building a new mall nearby that includes Walmart.I hope they do it here.

    Did anyone watch 20/20 last night? transgendered children

    I know.Its so sad.There has to be some underlying physiologic reason for this.You would think.
