I am just getting started and very nervous. I moved to Ozark, Albama just 2 weeks ago from Charlotte, NC. Economy had an effect on me where my lover and I had to leave due to not having no where to live. I moved down with my bestfriend/bother from the military and his family. I never had as much support like I do now.
I pray I make it through. Being a nurse has been a dream of mine for years. As a child I told my father I wanted to be a doctor and ever since til this day he calls me Doc. I hope to make him proud of me and my mother. My family period.
It's good to hear WCC has a high passing rate. I have one friend that told me WCC nurses/instructures do a weed out process. That's one thing I am nervous about. Expecially being a black male. I mean I wonder sometimes if they would be more worried about helping me or weeding me out. Either way I am focused and at this point in my life I never wanted something so bad as this. I know I will pass, I'm just trying to get prepared for the trails and tribulations I must face and overcome.
I hope to meet a good friend in school, someone I can study with and someone that is focused and determined to pass. Someone that is head strong and someone that can take a little challenge in life. Who knows maybe I'll meet a good friend on allnurses.com too.
