  • I am 33, have 3 kids and will graduate this December, I take my last final tomorrow in OB/PEDs. It has been tough, the tests are something you must get use to to survive, they are like no other test you have ever taken. You have to know the ins and outs of xyz but the questions are not knowledge based questions. It has taken alot of time, stress and sleepless nights to get her but I have a great support system and a hubby that will do anything I need. If this is something you really want to do, you can do it. If you want to know more you can PM me. I go to a tech college, and we out rank alot of the top schools in our state, pass our boards with higher scores the first time and are ranked at the top on national levels. Make sure you attend a good school. Local hospitals use or technology for training their staff. If you would like to know more you can PM me.
