Just signed up for the first go-round of prereqs at Rio:
CHM130 (and lab), BIO156 (and lab), and HCC145AA.
Then BIO 201 and 205, then hopefully an accelerated version of A&P II if I'm truly "getting it" after the first few classes. Should be finished and able to turn in applications by the end of the year.
I work in Phoenix with a great job so I am thinking of either going to a local college like Gateway (few miles from work), or sticking to one near home in Gilbert (Chandler-Gilbert CC). Luckily my proximity makes it easy to apply for a few colleges in case some have less waiting than others :spin:
Spent the past 10 years doing IT (web development) and some Real Estate, and like a few others here finally found Nursing as an outlet to let the more social and caring side out. The past few years working out and bodybuilding, I've grown so interested in biology (proteins, amino acids, muscle regrowth, cardio functions, etc.), I feel like I'll be doing more of the same, but just putting the work and learning towards an actual degree
Would like to go the CRNA route, but since that's far away, the first goal is to get into the field and see what my calling is
Sounds like there are a few other moms and dads on the board. I'm a fulltime single dad of two and they're part of my inspiration. My daughter's already fascinated with medicine and health.. maybe she's a chip off the old block
It's great to have so much Arizona-centric discussion!
