so, for those of you who don't know already, i have decided that i am going to nursing school. a lot of prayer, thought, and conversation has gone into this. believe me, it wasn't a quick decision, although it may seem like it. if all goes according to plan, i will begin school in january to get my pre-requisites for applying to the nursing program. once that happens, i'll only need 35 hours to get my RN (well, the diploma in order to take the certification test).
there are a lot of emotions going on in me about this new venture. i'm terrified to go back to school: i am by no means a student! but i am absolutely ecstatic about this whole prospect. i fell like for the first time in a long time i am actually moving forward in A direction rather than just standing still. and being a RN provides so many possibilities for a lot of what i want to do with my life. the demand for nurses is so high - that provides job security. the hours (shifts) make for a great environment to raise children. and the pay is not so bad either!
i have never thought of myself as a nurse - quite the opposite, in fact. but i see so much potential in this new journey and more than that, i see a great opportunity for ministry. i am excited about that!!!
oh, and by the way, my goal right now is to work either in the NICU or in Labor & Delivery.
now, on to the new adventure!!!!
