Good morning fellow Alabamaian's!
Thank you for reading this. I am a 41 year old father of an amazing 7 year old little lady. A few weeks back, we went through some major changes (mother left) and it made me want to completely review my life and make some changes for the better of my future and the future of my little girl. I decided to go back to school. I have always wanted to have a career that is challenging and after much thought, I decided to become an ER/RN.
Currently, I have enrolled @ Jefferson state community college and will be taking refresher courses for the summer 11-12 and then move onto nursing school there in the fall semester. I am reaching out for any and all advice from you all. I am very determined and have never failed at anything I set out to do. I do not quit and I do not take this class or career change lightly. The plan is to find someone here who could possibly tutor me and help guide me as I want to allow myself all the necessary tools and knowledge I can.
I went out last week and purchased two books:
1) Peterson's "Mastering the nursing school & allied health entrance exams"
2) Lippincott's "Q&A review for the NCLEX-RN"
Looking over these books is arcane...confusing and somewhat imposing.
If anyone here could please offer any knowledge, enlightenment and guidance, it would be greatly appreciated.
