Seven down, two to go.

  1. 5 Almost there, and I'm ready to be finished. Tests down are Health Safety, Health Differences, Lifespan I, II, and III, Transitions, and LS Developmental Psych. All that's left are Reproductive Health and Chronicity...then on to FCCA and CPNE!

    What started years ago as something I wanted to have done relatively quickly turned into a process that has taken much longer than I could have imagined. My message is simple: don't despair if you're not done in a year, or even two or longer. Life happens when you're busy making other plans, and it's not hard at all to lose sight of a goal, or lose your job, or have health issues. Stay motivated and you can do whatever you set your mind to.

    Best of luck in your studies, everyone.

    There's a saying: "You cannot get to the mountaintop without going first through the valley." Well done!!!

    Congratulations! Its always such an amazing feeling when you know you're almost out of the muck, and ready to start the next leg of the journey, so to speak. No matter how long it takes, or the obstacles, it looks like you've just been pushing ahead, which is a great definition of your own character, and the type of nurse you're going to be. Good luck! Love the quote reference, too

    Things are good! Gearing up for a deployment. If you told me 10 years ago that I'd be headed to Afghanistan as an Army nurse in 2013, I'd tell you to get your head examined! Hahaha.

    Amazing, isn't it? First off, thank you for your service to our country. Growing up in Virginia myself I had always thought that the military was an option for me. Scoring high on the ASVAB test in HS brought recruiters to my home for years after graduating. Unfortunately for me, hydrocephalus made me unable to serve. I wish you all the best and can't wait for (years from now) your posts or a book outlining your experiences.

    Likewise, if you had told me twenty years ago that I'd spend almost that long making a difference in the lives of the sickest, most beautiful children anywhere...I'd have told you that you were batsh*t crazy. I was a field medic all the way. Then I started working with those kids, and they changed my life forever. Now I just need to get my head back in the game and finish what I started.
