Stressful at times but easy. I was also 30, so I studied a lot. I would take one hour a day to watch TV and let my mind veg, but that was it.

education is a life long process. i wouldn't look at that like it was lowly. i'd say it was more of a foundation to work from. good for you that you've done it.

Thank you and also papayamon. I guess considering my background, I didn't do too bad.

papayamon, I thought of going for my BSN the first few years out of nursing school, but at 51 I'm looking to get out of nursing in the next upcoming years.
