Nutrition. Its FINALLY my turn. Youngest just graduated from high school and I'm officially a senior (yipee!!) at the University of Tennessee-Chattanooga. Chemistry sucks (at almost 49 years old) but I've proven to myself that I can do it and am highly motivated. Good luck to you!!

In a couple of months I will be starting my second year of seminary working on my Masters of Divinity degree (although it will probably take me 5-6 years total to finish). The seminary I attend is Bethany Theological Seminary in Richmond, IN which is a 2 1/2 hour drive from where I live. But I know it is all worth it.

I've just been accepted into my colleges Medical Assistant course :D They only accept 24 students per year, so Im pretty stoked! Next I will finish up my nursing pre- requs and continue on to the nursing program! But one thing at a time! :D
I was laid off a year ago, and its been really tight with only one income, since I've been focusing on school. So knowing that I will be working within the next year is awesome!!

I'm majoring in Women and Gender Studies at Oakland University in Michigan. After this term, only 5-6 more classes and I'm done! Only took 9 years, but hey, at least I'm going to finish!
After this, I'm applying either to a community college for an AD in nursing (ADN) or for an accelerated BSN program through the university I'm currently at. It all depends on finances. *sigh*

I have 3 kids ages 6, 4, and 2. My fiancé has been incredibly supportive. I went to University of Phoenix for my Associates in Business Management. I am now currently attending Southern New Hampshire Online getting my Bachelors in Accounting. I will go on for a second degree in Finance/Economics and will move on to Dartmouth or London School of Economics for my MBA in Economics. I would like to get into management consulting, tax advisory or auditing. So I have a few years ahead of me!

Im going back to school to finish Nursing. I had to drop out the day before i was suppose to start Nursing school because i found out that i was pregnant with my twins and that i would have to hospitalized. I already have my AA in ESE Education but Nursing has always been my passion. Good luck to all the moms out there in school and I praise all of you for holding down the fort in your families and in school.

I'm back in school for my BA in Psychology, and I'm obtaining a Certificate in Women's Studies while I'm doing by BA as we don't have what is considered "minors" in the U.S. in our University (Laurentian University) We essentially stack the deck as it were with the subjects we prefer in our designation and it is considered as our minor if that makes sense! Here is an awesome site to keep other Mature students with busy lives organized with Assignments, it's fabulous...http://www.biblio.uottawa.ca/assign-calc...
It's an assignment calculator and it will calculate when and how much time to alot for your given assignments once you get your syllabus! Thought I'd pass on some tid bits for you all! I'm from Canada BTW! Cheers all! Colleen at Laurentian @ Georgian...

I will be graduating in May with my Master's in Science - Communication Disorders, Speech-Language Pathology. I am attending SUNY New Paltz. Like some of the other mom's have mentioned I couldn't have done it without an extremely supportive husband and children. My kids are now 14, 12, & 9; they were 10, 8. & 5 when I started on this adventure.
