Hi Natalie my name is Sharonda and I am a Senior nursing student at NCCU in Durham, NC. I am 35 yrs. of age and a single mom of three 11, 7, and 5. Two boys and a girl. Going to nursing school and being a single parent is a little challenging but I thank the Lord that he has brought me this far. I am so excited about this upcoming year it seems as though it has been a long time coming. I just wanted to encourage you to stick in there and no matter how long it takes you keep sticking in there as long as it makes you happy. If you ever need to talk just send me a message or we could talk about some nursing things.

Neat group!

I just got accepted into the nursing program at my school.  I start in January, my school started a new program last year where you're admitted into 1 of 4 cohorts.  You can start in August, October, January or March.

So this semester I'm taking child psych.  Don't want to take it, but I need it to graduate, so I'd rather just get it done. 

It's taken me 4 years to get through the prerequisites I needed, b/c I was taking them 1 class at a time.  NEVER again.  The only class I'm not looking forward to is Pharmacology, I don't do math.

My kids are 13 and 10.  When I graduate, my oldest will be a sophomore in high school, which means we will be beginning the college thing all over again.

HI my name is Tonya.  Nice to meet you all.  What an awesome thing, to find groups that have to do with your life.

I will be starting my pre-req's in September.  Sometimes I think I've lost my mind.  How am I going to work 40 + a week and take care of a busy household with kids in sports full time, and school 3 nights a week.  WOW but I want this soooo bad and have hope that it will all work out.

Hi all! My name is Megan and I'm going into my second year of college but its all my pre req' classes. Hopefully I'll be ready to go into the nursing program next spring! Very very excited! I have a 2 1/2 year old daughter named Savannah! So glad you started this group. I'm sure I'll have some questions!

Hi name is Brandy I am a 22. year old single mother..of an 8 month old daughter named SAVANNAH ALSO...:-D I will be starting the accelerated nursing program for lpn this september.  I started taking my pre req's for rn.  At the college here in ny that I am going to...its so hard to get into the rn program just as a college student. If you are an lpn its Im going to do the 10 month lpn then it just 2 semesters for my rn. I cant wait.
